Abstract:

This book investigates how Japanese participants accommodate to and makeuse of genre-specific characteristics to make stories tellable, createinterpersonal involvement, negotiate responsibility, and show theirpersonal selves. The analyses of storytelling in casual conversation,animation narratives, television talk shows, survey interviews, and largeuniversity lectures focus on participation/participatory framework, topicalcoherence, involvement, knowledge, the story recipient's role, prosody andnonverbal behavior. Story tellers across genre are shown to uselinguistic/paralinguistic (prosody, reported speech, style shifting,demonstratives, repetition, ellipsis, co-construction, connectives, finalparticles, onomatopoeia) and nonverbal (gesture, gaze, head nodding)devices to involve their recipients, and recipients also use a multiple ofdevices (laughter, repetition, responsive forms, posture changes) to shapethe development of the stories. Nonverbal behavior proves to be a richresource and constitutive feature of storytelling across genre. Theanalyses also shed new light on grammar across genre (ellipsis,demonstratives, clause combining), and illustrate a variety of methods forstudying genre.
