Title

Storytelling for Children- How Stories are Negotiated Through Language

Abstract

Storytelling is human. Humans connect, express their experience, share it and gain knowledge about the world and realities they inhabit through the narrative in which story is the most commonly used form. Humans learn from narration of each other. This is truer of children who imitate their parents in all aspects of life. In countries like India, where there are hundreds of linguistic groups, confusion in government policy over the language of education and confusion in society over which language to prioritise for living and which one for livelihood, parents and children face some tough challenges. Parents are educated in one language, their children in another; they together inhabit a space that is seldom dealing in one language. The same applies to script. It is now an accepted fact that Indians inhabit a multilingual world. We are also aware that in India the aural and oral communication and media universe dominates. However, with digitisation, we are now faced with the opportunity and the challenge of dealing with a highly visual and graphic media universe. This now means that an average Indian, especially the ones living in cities, inhabit a multimedia media universe as well. Give our variety in cultural and social values we inhabit a multimodal and multivalent reality. This plurality of being is part of our everyday living. As our day-to-day communication gets more digitised and mediatised our challenge of storytelling is going to be much more. How will this affect the narrative practices between parents, teachers and children? Are we to tell stories differently now? Are we to mediate our everyday narratives for our own children? Are we headed towards better communication or a communication gap, despite the technological advances and increasing access to media and communication technology? These questions led us to study storytelling between parents and children. Do they understand what is being said? Or do the children language the stories that have been told and interpret them differently? This study, using an experimental method and qualitative methodological approach, investigated the effect of language on the understanding and interpretation of stories on children.
