"You Think It was a 'Fight'?": Co-constructing (the Struggle for) Meaning, Face, and Family in Everyday Narrative Activity.
Taylor, Carolyn E.
Research on Language and Social Interaction, v28 n3 p283-317 1995
Focuses on the narrative activity between parents and children to coconstruct both the meaning of a spousal narrative dispute as speech event and what it meant that such an episode had been videotaped. The family members codrafted a revised account of their story realm that seems to minimize chaos and maximize order and emphasize that "father knows best." (42 references) (CK)
