Rio Grande do Sul Puc-RS 2013.1 Questão: 59 Inglês Interpretação de Texto 

INSTRUCTION: Answer questions 56 to 60 in relation to text 2. 


  1. Everyday conversational narratives of personal
  2. experience might be regarded as the country
  3. cousins of more well-wrought narratives. The work
  4. of archaeologist Nicholas Toth revolutionized the
  5. understanding of Stone Age tools. Prior to Toth’s
  6. studies, the received perspective was that early
  7. hominids chipped a cobble in such a way that it
  8. could be used as a pick or a hand ax. Researchers
  9. considered the splintered flakes as waste products
  10. and examined them for information about techniques
  11. used to shape the stone core tool. While others were
  12. analyzing the morphological shapes and cognitive
  13. correlates of the chipped cores, Toth, in a radical
  14. turnabout, discovered that the flakes were the primary
  15. tools and that the large stone was an incidental byproduct,
  16. possibly a secondary tool. The flakes turned
  17. out to be “extremely effective cutting tools” for animals,
  18. wood, hides, and other work. We posit that, like stone
  19. flakes, mundane conversational narratives of personal
  20. experience constitute the prototype of narrative activity
  21. rather than the flawed by-product of more artful and
  22. planned narrative discourse.
