Hello!!! You are here!! How are you?

Well I think you are in a great condition…

What’s our lesson now? Yes, you’ll learn about narrative text. By the way, do you know what narrative text is??

Before I tell you the definition of narrative text, I want to ask you first.

Have you ever heard the story of Cinderella, Malin Kundang, Snow White, or maybe Kancil Nyolong Timun??

Perhaps your father told you those stories when you were child. You also read those stories in a story book.

Those stories are interesting. You like to read those stories to entertain yourself. You feel curios and want to know what happen to your favorite character in the end of the story. You like the character, the conflict, and the plot of the story. Besides, you can get moral values from those stories. Although you know that the story does not really happen in our real life, you still like it.

Well, those stories belong to NARRATIVE TEXT. I think you know what narrative text is.

Narrative text has a social function. The social function is to entertain or amuse the reader or listener.

Below is the example of narrative text.

Have you read the story? It tells about Snow White. However, the story is different with the story you have known. The conflict is very simple, but you are still entertained, right?

Now, we’ll discuss about the generic structure of narrative text. Commonly, there are three parts of text in narrative. Those are ORIENTATION, COMPLICATION, and RESOLUTION. However some narrative stories have a COD

THE GENERIC STRUCTURE

  • ORIENTATION
             It tells the audience about who is in the story, when the story is taking place and where  the action is happening.
  • COMPLICATION
             It sets off a chain of events that influence what will happen in the story.
  • RESOLUTION
             The characters finally sort out the complication.
  • CODA

It contains moral values.

Here the generic structure of Snow White

After we discuss about the definition, social function, and generic structure of narrative, now you will learn about language features of narrative.

LANGUAGE FEATURES OF NARRATIVE TEXT

  • Past tense (killed, drunk,etc)
  • Adverb of time (Once upun a time, one day, etc)
  • Time conjunction (when, then, suddenly, etc)
  • Specific character. The character of the story is specific, not general. (Cinderella, Snow White, Alibaba, etc)
  • Action verbs. A verb that shows an action. (killed, dug, walked, etc)
  • Direct speech. It is to make the story lively. (Snow White said,”My name is Snow White). The direct speech uses present tense.

Well, you have known about the definition, social function, generic structure, and language structures of narrative. Do you understand?? Do my explanation answer your question? If you don’t understand the material, you can ask me in our meeting or send me e-mail (devaniqua_pika@yahoo.co.id).
