Archetypes are not theoretical conjectures but real melodies
which are particularly well structured, and
which play an important role in the classification of other melodies.

There are archetypes in the three categories of melodic structure,
in Melo-Rhythm, Melo-Harmony, and in the contours of Melo-Lines.

Many of the most fundamental archetypes will be French songs,
because the language, with its lack of rebounds, is rich in this category.
