Abstract:
			
John Benjamins Publishing would like to announce the publication of
the following title in the field of Pragmatics: When Listeners
Talk:Response tokens and listener stance by Rod Gardner, University of New 
South Wales
Listeners are usually considered recipients in conversational
interaction, whose main activity is to take in messages from other
speakers. In this view, the listening activity is separate from
speaking. Another view is that listeners and speakers are equal
co-participants in conversations who construct the talk together. In
support of this latter view, one finds a group of vocalisations which
are quintessentially listener talk - little conversational objects
such as uh-huh, oh, mm, yeah, right and mm-hm. These utterances do not
have meanings in a conventional dictionary sense, but are nevertheless
loaded with complex and subtle information about the stance listeners
take to what they are hearing, information that is gleaned not ! only
from their phonetic form, but also from their complex prosodic shape
and their placement and timing within the flow of talk. This book
summarizes eight of these objects, and explores one, mm, in depth.
