"In this paper we present the first results of a corpus-based analysis of narrative. in Spanish and English youth language.

Our analysis is based on two Bergen Corpora of teenage. informal conversation: the Corpus of London Teenage Language (COLT), and. the Madrid subcorpus of the Corpus Oral de Lenguaje Adolescente (COLAm).. In this paper we direct our analysis to some specific aspects of youth narrative:. namely story openers and closers, and quotation strategies. The analysis highlights. remarkable similarities in narrative construction in the two linguistic communities. and illustrates how the study of both youth language and conversational narrative. can benefit from the use of comparable corpora."

Abstract

"In this paper we present the first results of a corpus-based analysis of narrative. in Spanish and English youth language. The study focuses on conversational. narrative, i.e. on natural occurring narratives that emerge in young people’s. everyday interactions. Our analysis is based on two Bergen Corpora of teenage. informal conversation: the Corpus of London Teenage Language (COLT), and. the Madrid subcorpus of the Corpus Oral de Lenguaje Adolescente (COLAm).. In this paper we direct our analysis to some specific aspects of youth narrative:. namely story openers and closers, and quotation strategies. The analysis highlights. remarkable similarities in narrative construction in the two linguistic communities. and illustrates how the study of both youth language and conversational narrative. can benefit from the use of comparable corpora."
