Presenting narration : The perspectival construction of narrativity in Bulgarian and Macedonian


Sonnenhauser, Barbara (2016). Presenting narration : The perspectival construction of narrativity in Bulgarian and Macedonian. In: Igl, Natalia; Zeman, Sonja. Perspectives on Narrativity and Narrative Perspectivization. Amsterdam, Philadelphia: John Benjamins, 43-62.

Abstract

This chapter describes narrativity as a fundamentally perspectival phenomenon, with perspectivity resulting from the interaction of viewpoint-introducing linguistic means. Their perspectival potential gives rise to a separate textual layer from which narration is presented. Along these lines, narrativity is regarded as evolving from the reflection on the relation between these two layers, i.e. the relation between an observer’s (mainly narrator’s and character’s) point of view and narration in its constitutive elements, such as events and objects. Among the linguistic means introducing viewpoints are the renarrative forms in Bulgarian and the tripartite definite article in Macedonian. Both are shown in this chapter to be prime examples illustrating the close relation between narrativity and perspectivity.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
