Kornev and lngrida Balčiūnienė’s present an experimental study into the verbalisations of causal relations. Krzysztof Kosecki expertly discusses the coding of event structure in the language of the deaf; James Moir analyses career choice narratives. Bartosz Stopel’s interesting article explains the role of Turner’s double-scope blending theory for cognition and emotional response to narratives.

The article by Magdalena Zabielska is a must to read, too. lt provides an analysis of medical records found in medical journals and treats them as a kind of narratives.
