Abstract:

This book presents research findings on the overall process of storytelling as
a social event in Japanese everyday conversations focusing on the relationship
between a story and surrounding talks, the social and cultural aspects of the
participants, and the tellability of conversational stories. Focusing on the
participants’ verbal and nonverbal behavior and their use of linguistic
devices, the chapters describe how the participants display their orientation
to the a) embeddedness of the story in the conversation, b) their views of
past events, c) their knowledge about the story content and elements, and d)
their social circumstances, and how these four elements are relevant for a
story becoming worth telling and sharing. The book furthers the
sociolinguistic analysis of conversational storytelling by describing how the
participants’ concerns about social circumstances as members of a particular
community, specifically their role relationships and interpersonal
relationships with others, influence the shape of their storytelling.
