[en] This paper investigates the relationship between men and women in folksong texts. But it does neither deal with a repertoire that reflects the views of men over women, nor with a depiction of women in folk songs. Nevertheless, it begins with the latter aspect in mentioning from a folkloric viewpoint a relationship in using embellished and trivialized metaphors. These types of folksongs are by no means characteristic for a repertoire, similar over language barriers. Most folk songs address in a more or less neutral way the cohabitation between man and women. The inversion of gender roles is broadly represented. The description of folk songs about gender concepts concludes the article.
