One decade later, Relating Events in Narrative, Volume 2: Typological
and Contextual Perspectives is the follow up to the 1994 publication,
Relating Events in Narrative: A Crosslinguistics Developmental Study
(by Ruth Berman and Dan Slobin). Because both books explore a range of
topics using Mercer Mayer's picture book, Frog: where are you? as the
research vehicle, the Relating Events volumes have become known to our
publishing team as the Frog Story books.

The new volume brings together international scholars who have all
used Frog: where are you? for their crosslinguistic research. The book
is divided into two parts: Part 1 of this book focuses on factors of
linguistic typology in frog story research, while Part 2 presents
different perspectives on the genre of frog story narrative. These
perspectives include theory of mind, bilingualism, and second language

The present volume deals with American Sign Language, Arrernte,
Basque, English, Hebrew, Icelandic, Japanese, Spanish, Swedish, Thai,
Turkish, Tzeltal, Warlpiri and West Greenlandic. That makes fourteen
languages and six phyla, compared to five languages and three phyla in
Volume I. The theme that runs throughout the chapters is that
crosslinguistic variation is as different in content and cognitive
aspects as it is in language form.
