Abstract:

This book investigates the forms and functions of storytelling in everyday
conversation. It develops a rhetoric of everyday storytelling through an
integrated approach to both the internal structure and the contextual
integration of narrative passages. It aims at a more complete picture of
oral narrative through analysis of a wider range of natural data, including
personal anecdotes told for humor, put-down stories told for
self-aggrandizement, family stories retold to ratify membership and so on,
as well as marginal stories and narrative-like passages to delineate the
boundaries of conversational storytelling and to test the analytical
techniques proposed.

Using transcriptions of stories from everyday talk, Norrick explores
disfluencies, formulaicity and repetition as teller strategies and listener
cues alongside global phenomena such as retelling and narrative
macrostructures. He also extends his analysis to narrative jokes from
conversation and to narrative passages in drama, namely Shakespeare's
"Romeo & Juliet" and Beckett's "Endgame".
