This book investigates the notion of conversational dominance in
depth, and seeks to establish a systematic method of analysing it. It
also offers a new insight into the role of gender and the pragmatic
transfer of conversational norms in the first and second language
conversations among native speakers of Japanese. Drawing upon a
critical synthesis of insights from several different fields,
including Conversation Analysis, the Birmingham school of discourse
analysis, and dialogical analysis, the author proposes an innovative
analytical framework for operationalising the concept of dominance in
conversation. She then applies this framework to the empirical
analysis of Japanese speakers' L1 and L2 conversations, finding direct
evidence for the important role of gender and pragmatic transfer in
conversational dominance. By integrating quantitative and qualitative
approaches to discourse analysis, the author offers a new perspective
into the pragmatic transfer of conversational norms. She does so by
demonstrating how the notion of self-oriented and other-oriented
conversational styles and strategies can affect the level of transfer
of interactional behaviour differently for male and female speakers.
