Example text

In particular, I investigate the tellability of a story in terms of (a) the embeddedness of the story in the conversation, (b) the participants’ view of past events in the story, (c) the participants’ knowledge in relation to the content or elements of the story, and (d) the participants’ concern about the social circumstances. First, the embeddedness of a story in the ongoing conversation refers to how a story fits into the conversational circumstance. It concerns how the story teller introduces her story into the ongoing conversation when she tells the story.

In chapters three and four I demonstrate how the story tellers create the conversational circumstance for their stories and fit the story to it, displaying their concerns about (a) the continuity of the story to the ongoing conversation, (b) the  Conversational Storytelling among Japanese Women characterization of the story, (c) the recipients’ knowledge about the story and story elements, and (d) the social circumstances, specifically the untellable aspect of the story.

However, because there are cases where what sort of telling may remain indeterminate at the beginning (for example, Mandelbaum’s (1987) storytelling), the “observable relationship between a story and prior turn-by-turn talk” (Jefferson, 1978, p. 224) within the sequential context should be examined not only in terms of turn-taking but also as continuing a topic, activity, or both. Extensive examination of the conversational circumstances under which a story from multiple aspects is told is necessary to see how it becomes tellable for the participants.
