Abstract:

'This collection is the first to consistently adopt Conversation
Analysis as an approach to second language interaction. By examining
first and second language speakers' participation in a wide range of
activities, it challenges the dominant view of 'non-native speakers'
as deficient communicators. Proposing instead to understand second
language users' conversational participation as interactional
achievement, the book makes a powerful case for 'ethnomethodological
re-specification' in second language research.' Professor Gabriele
Kasper, University of Hawai'i

Conversations involving speakers whose first language is not the
language in which they are talking have become widespread in the
globalized world. Migration, increased travel for business or
pleasure, as well as communication through new technologies such as
the internet make Second Language Conversations an increasingly common
everyday event.

In this book, second language conversations, is used to explore
natural, casual talk between speakers in a second language. The
contributors shift emphasis away from controlled contexts such as the
classroom towards more sociable environments in which people go about
their daily routines. English, German, French, Japanese, Finnish and
Danish are all analyzed as second languages within a variety of
professional, educational and sociable situations.
