Title:Participant reference in Kuot narrative
Abstract:This study accepts the premise that semantically defined boundaries (based upon the notions time, place, action, and participants) exist in texts; and, it goes on to demonstrate that in Kuot narratives a hierarchy of referential forms (or coding points) exists such that the application (or non-application) of certain referential forms correlates with the categories major participant, minor participant, and prop. This feature of Kuot discourse is important because it is an indicator of a speaker’s sentiments regarding who the main character of a narrative truly is — possibly contrasting with other less subtle indicators, such as amount of activity by a particular character or number of references made to a particular character.
