Message 1: Discourse Analysis: Negotiating Agreement & Disagreement in Japanese

Subject: Discourse Analysis: Negotiating Agreement & Disagreement in Japanese

John Benjamins Publishing announces a new work in Discourse Analysis and
Japanese:

Negotiating Agreement and Disagreement in Japanese.
Connective expressions and turn construction.
Junko MORI (University of Wisconsin - Madison
Studies in Discourse and Grammar 8
US & Canada: 1 55619 374 2 / USD 75.00 (Hardcover)
Rest of world: 90 272 2618 0 / NLG 150.00 (Hardcover)

On the basis of the meticulous transcription/observation process of
'Conversation Analysis', this book observes recurrent patterns in
sequences where Japanese speakers negotiate agreement and
disagreement. It contributes to the growing body of research on
'interaction and grammar' by examining how linguistic recourses are
utilized for constructing turns and anticipating the upcoming course
of interaction. More specifically, it focuses on the recurrent use of
two structurally different types of connective expressions:
clause-initial connectives and clause-final connective particles. The
study examines the occurrences of these causal and contrastive markers
with reference to their sequential environment and the resulting
interaction. While the introductory chapters situate this approach in
the current literature, the main analytical chapters investigate the
ways in which 'delivery of agreement', 'delivery of disagreement', and
'pursuit for agreement' are performed with the use of the different
types of connective expressions. As one of the earliest conversation
analytic studies of Japanese, this book also addresses methodological
issues concerning cross-linguistic, cross-cultural studies of human
interaction.

central phenomena in South Slavic syntax and semantics, with an
informal introduction by the editors on South Slavic clause
structure. Phenomena addressed (treated partly on a language specific

field, verb fronting, clitic placement, conjunctions, noun phrase
structure, possessives, agreement, and aspectual phenomena.
