Developing construals of a narrative event sequence
The chapter examines Hebrew-language excerpts relating to a particular episode in the “frog-story” picture book following on from Aksu-Koç and Tekdemir’s (2004) study of “the interplay between narrativity and mindreading.” Verbalizations of Hebrew-speaking preschoolers and school children compared with adults provide further evidence for the complex interweaving of cognitive and linguistic knowledge in development of narrative abilities. Young preschool children show native-like command of clause-level grammar and lexicon, but fail to recognize the protagonist’s misconception whereas by school-age, participants invariably correctly identify the objects depicted graphically by the author-illustrator. Findings are discussed in terms of the developing ability to recognize this complex interrelation between events and to verbalize them in linguistically appropriate terms.
