Unit 14 Using Transitions and Keeping Continuity in Narratives Using Transitions and Keeping Continuity in

Narratives, p. 2 A third way to show continuity is to account for movement between places. Often this is done with certain signs that show a natural beginning and end, r coming and going. See the illustrations of possible beginning-end pairs below. You may substitute similar signs for either of the paired signs in the illustrations. Also, the

second sign of the pair does not have to immediately follow the first; other signs may be included between them. The important thing is to include enough information. Dont leave your audience stranded: if you say you went by bus to one place, you should also say that you got back from there. If you dont account for time or movement, your audience may feel something is missing from your narrative.
