Abstract:

Chinese Language Narration: Culture, cognition, and emotion is a collection of
papers presenting original research on narration in Mandarin, especially as it
contrasts to what is known regarding narration in English. One chapter
addresses dinner table conversation between Chinese immigrant parents and
children in the United States compared to non-immigrant peers. Other chapters
consider evaluation patterns in Mandarin versus English, referencing
strategies, coherence patterns, socioeconomic differences among Taiwanese
Mandarin-speaking children, and differences in narration due to Specific
Language Impairment and schizophrenia. Several chapters address developmental
concerns. Distinctive aspects of narration in Mandarin are linked to larger
issues of autobiographical memory. Mandarin is spoken by far more people than
any other language, yet narration in this language has received notably less
attention than narration in Western languages. This collective effort is a
critical addition to our understanding of cross-cultural similarities and
differences in how people make sense of experiences through narrative.
