Book Information


Title: Erzählen als Form – Formen des Erzählens [Narrative as Form – Form of Narrative]
Edited By: Friederike Kern
Miriam Morek
Sören Ohlhus
Series Title: De Gruyter Reihe Germanistische Linguistik 295

The articles in this volume provide an insight into the richness of narrative. In
the process they focus on two main areas: oral narrative as part of everyday
interaction and the acquisition of narrative abilities as part of more
comprehensive discursive competencies. From a linguistic perspective, the
variance of the narrative form also points to the esthetic dimensions of literary
narrative. The concept of this volume is derived from the work of Uta Quasthoff,
whose 65th birthday prompted its creation and publication.
