Message 1: Meta-interactional locutions
From: Jan Lindström <jklindstling.helsinki.fi>
Subject: Meta-interactional locutions
I am interested in 'meta-interactive' formula or locutions that are suited
to address different problems in conversation, especially problems related
to turn-taking. My question is: what kind of conventional expressions could
a) to comment on a contrubution that does not orient (properly) to a prior
contribution; in CA-terms, a contribution that is not a recognizable
'second' (e.g., a question seeks and answer, an evaluation seeks comment or
b) to comment on an interruption of a speaker's turn, e.g. comments like
'you're interrupting me!', 'it's my (his/her) turn'.
I am interested in locutions and strategies dealing with the above problems
in different languages (and cultures). Idiomatic, metaphorical, routinized
as well as less fixed but conceivable everyday expressions are of interest.
This query relates to an earlier one about formula adressing non-replies
and which was summarized last week.
Thankful for any kind of help,

Subject: Seeking Muna Article
I am looking for a copy of Rene van den Berg's 1991 article Muna dialects
and Munic languages: Towards a reconstruction. Does anyone have a copy of
this email? Or if not, Professor van den Berg's email address? I've been
looking around for it, but have come up empty
