This book addresses current approaches to sequentiality in pragmatics
and discourse analysis. It reflects the current moves in
ethnomethodological conversation analysis and speech act theory to
cross methodological borders to arrive at a conception of a sequence,
which extends the local notion of sequentiality by integrating further
constitutive components, such as cognition, intentionality, activity
type, culture and genre.The individual contributions were presented at
the 7th IPrA Conference held in Budapest in the year 2000. They range
from critical analyses of speech act theory and cognitive pragmatics
to detailed micro analyses of genre- and activity-specific constraints
on the production and interpretation of meaning. The first part
"sequences in theory and practice: minimal and unbounded" discusses
the theoretical premises and exemplifies these by detailed data
analyses. The second part "sequences in discourse: the micro-macro
interface" examines genre-specifi! c constraints on individual
sequences and shows the benefits of supplementing the microanalytic
concept of sequentiality with macroanalytic categories.
