Actions, Events, Scenes, Plots, and the Drama. Language and the Constitution of Part-Whole Relationships.
Bamberg, Michael
Language Sciences, v16 n1 p39-79 Jan 1994
This article challenges the assumption that actors, action, spatial scenes, and temporal events are primitives out of which narratives are formed. Then, a number of empirical investigations are presented of how children of different ages and languages differentiate between language forms and functions in their construction of actors, actions, scenes, and events as part-whole relationships.
