Item description for Oral Narration in Modern French: A Linguistic Analysis of Temporal Patterns (Research Monographs in French Studies) (Research Monographs in French Studies) by Janice Carruthers...

Storytelling is a universal human activity and oral narration has long been fertile ground for linguists working on tense usage across a variety of languages. Fascinating parallels have been drawn between the patterns in 'conversational' narration (such as anecdotes or personal stories) and in medieval narratives. This book introduces oral storytelling into the debate, using data from traditional and contemporary storytellers in French.
