Abstract:

This book focuses on how participants in Japanese conversation
negotiate and achieve joint courses of action within a single turn at
talk. Using the methodology of Conversation Analysis as a central
framework, this book describes in detail the structures and procedures
used by Japanese speakers to jointly produce a coherent grammatical
unit-in-progress, and explores the range of social actions that
speakers accomplish by employing that practice. This study is part of
a larger project intended to investigate how humans achieve intricate
coordination of their behavior with that of co-participants in
everyday social encounters and how language plays a constitutive part
in making such micro-level social coordination possible. Through a
close examination of joint utterance construction in Japanese, this
book contributes to a growing body of research into the mutual
influence between the grammatical organization of language and the
organization of situated human conduct in social interaction.
