Title: Storytelling across Japanese Conversational Genre
Edited By: Polly E. Szatrowski
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SiN%2013
Series Title: Studies in Narrative 13
Description:

This book investigates how Japanese participants accommodate to and make
use of genre-specific characteristics to make stories tellable, create
interpersonal involvement, negotiate responsibility, and show their
personal selves. The analyses of storytelling in casual conversation,
animation narratives, television talk shows, survey interviews, and large
university lectures focus on participation/participatory framework, topical
coherence, involvement, knowledge, the story recipient’s role, prosody and
nonverbal behavior. Story tellers across genre are shown to use
linguistic/paralinguistic (prosody, reported speech, style shifting,
demonstratives, repetition, ellipsis, co-construction, connectives, final
particles, onomatopoeia) and nonverbal (gesture, gaze, head nodding)
devices to involve their recipients, and recipients also use a multiple of
devices (laughter, repetition, responsive forms, posture changes) to shape
the development of the stories. Nonverbal behavior proves to be a rich
resource and constitutive feature of storytelling across genre. The
analyses also shed new light on grammar across genre (ellipsis,
demonstratives, clause combining), and illustrate a variety of methods for
studying genre.
