This chapter examines the process of reframing and identifies blended frames as a third kind of frame lamination. It does so by investigating how language from children's storybooks is repeatedly recontextualized in one extended interaction between one mother and her four‐year‐old daughter. The participants use patterns of repetition to (re)define their interaction and to undertake different activities, including to play in various ways and to display knowledge. The mother also uses repetition as a means of blending play frames and task‐based frames. The chapter compares and contrasts the different laminations identified in chapters 4 and 5. It also discusses how these laminations relate to the cognitive theory of conceptual blending.

Keywords:   reframing, blended frames, play frame, children's storybooks, parenting, conceptual blending, mother‐child discourse, meaning‐making, recontextualization
