Abstract
Stories in conversation often start with references to time, person, and location. We examine the role of place references in story launchings in three different cultures. We find that while any type of place reference can help signal that a story is coming up, different types of place references project different kinds of stories. The rich information evoked by place references makes them an excellent linguistic resource to do scene-setting for the narrated world.
