It presents a historic and theoretical history underlying the DC concept, together with discussions of deixis in language and the character of fiction. It is going directly to define the computational framework and the way it really is used to symbolize deixis in narrative, and info the linguistic units implicated within the DC idea. different topics lined comprise: crosslinguistic signs of subjectivity, mental investigations of using deixis via little ones and adults as they technique narratives, dialog, course giving, implications for rising literacy, and a narrator's event in writing a quick story.
