Abstract

OW GONZALEZ, Maili  and  ALVARADO BARRA, Carola. CHILDREN NARRATORS: DISCURSIVE AND SYNTACTIC COMPLEXITY GROWTH IN SCHOOL AGE. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2013, n.28, pp.149-167. ISSN 0716-5811.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-58112013000200009.

This paper describes oral narratives across schooling, considering syntactic complexity and the role of clause package (Katzenberger, 2004) in the narrative sequence (Adam, 1999). Results obtained from a sample of 259 Chilean students in various school grades are shown to describe syntactic complexity and a subsample of 15 texts was analyzed to detect the role of clause packagings and interclause relations. Results confirm previous findings: syntactic complexity increases as age and grade, increase the number and functional use of clause package and the mastery of the narrative sequence.

Keywords : oral development; syntactic complexity; narrative; clause packagings; narrative sequence.
