This collection of previously unpublished, cutting-edge research
discusses the conversation analysis (CA) approach to understanding
language use. CA is the dominant theory for analyzing the social use
of language and is concerned with the description of how speakers
engage in conversation and other forms of social interaction involving
language. Its proponents are not only linguists but sociologists and
anthropologists as well. The unifying theme of these chapters is the
intersection of practice and form through the construction of turns
and sequences.
