Abstract:

Bringing together twenty-five years of research on the sequential
organization of laughter in everyday talk, Phillip Glenn analyzes
recordings and transcripts to indicate the finely-detailed
coordination of human laughter. He demonstrates that its occurrence,
relative to talk and other activities, reveals much about its emergent
meaning and effects. The book considers laughter's significant role in
how people display, respond to, and revise identities and
relationships.
