La narration dans la conversation : une approche conversationniste

Abstract : This thesis takes a Conversational Analysis-type approach to examine the way that narratives are constructed in conversation. The study takes into account the negociation of turn-taking and story content between speakers, the contributions of the story-listeners being as important as those of the narrator. Three phases of story-telling are studied in detail : the pre-beginning (pré-début de narration), the climax (point culminant) and the story ending (terminaison). The pre-beginning was found to be an important element in narrative construction, as it lets the listeners know what kind of story is coming up. Three kinds of story were identified in the corpus studied : explicative and illustrative stories, and stories told simply for the telling. According to the pre-beginning, the listeners are oriented, or not, towards a climax in the story. The story ending provides a final opportunity to resolve any problems that may be revealed.
