Description - Relating Events in Narrative by Sven Stromqvist

This work is the follow-up volume to the "frog-story studies" book, "Relating Events in Narrative: A Cross-Linguistic Developmental Study" (1994). The new editors have brought together a wide range of scholars who, inspired by the 1994 book, have used Mercer Mayer's "Frog, Where Are You?" as a basis for their research. The new book manuscript which is divided into two parts, features a broad linguistic and cultural diversity: contributions focusing on crosslinguistic perspectives make up the first part of the book. This part is concluded by Dan Slobin with an analysis and overview discussion of factors of linguistic typology in frog-story research. The second part offers a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives, all dealing with contextual variation of narrative construction in a wide sense: variation across medium/modality (speech, writing, signing), genre variation (the specific frog story narrative compared to other genres), frog story narrations from the perspective of theory of mind and from the perspective of of bilingualism and second language acquisition. Several of the contributions to the new book also deal with developmental perspectives, but, in distinction to the 1994 book, that is not the only focused issue.
