Chapter Summary

This chapter tests in what specific ways frame theory may be used as a heuristic tool of leading us to a better understanding of Mark's Controversy Stories (2.1-3.6) as a part of oral-aural narrative. It focuses on frames' comprehension processing associated with how the narrative says. The chapter demonstrates the frames' function in organizing the three units of narrative discourse in Mark 2.1-3.6 such as a thematic section, paragraph or episode, and clause or sentence on the part of the hearer. It shows that frames help organize Mark 2.1-3.6 into a larger thematic unit. It then focuses on the frames' role in marking paragraph or episode boundaries, and finally the frames' function of chunking information at the level of clause will be discussed in order to define what the remembered gist of each episode might be.
