An interpretive analysis of the constructive processes in an extemporaneous narrative applies an expanded ethnography of speaking method which accesses sociocultural and psychological meanings by considering temporal and intonational phenomena as clues to states of experiential disorder. Repair mechanisms in response to such disorder in the biographical schemes of a bicultural narrator provide insights into the convergence of contrasting worldviews. In this case, the convergence reveals a paradox with regard to the narrator's views on mainstream assumptions about morality and maturity. Interpretive studies about the impact of deviant experiences on the biography constructions of members of bicultural communities may contribute to the understanding of syncretism in symbolic universes.
