Insights and implications

BySoe Marlar Lwin

Chapter 5 summarizes the insights gained from applying the contextualized multimodal framework to two sample analyses of live storytelling performances in Chapter 4 for the specification of their narrativity in context. It then discusses the two key implications of adopting a multimodal perspective on applied storytelling performances, that is, understanding the narrativity of a live storytelling performance in its context and totality, and recognizing the exploitability of features made available by the oral medium and how these features contribute to the narrativity of oral storytelling.
