Description
The concept of the subjunctive mode provides a useful key in exploring narrative comprehension in different media. This article reports on a study in which twelve undergraduates, working in groups of three, read a novel, watched a movie, and played a digital game. Analysis of transcripts of their responses reveals that the role of the subjunctive in their developing awareness of the story is an element that crosses media boundaries and allows forms of cross-media comparison.
