Title: Applying Conversation Analysis 
 Publication Year: 2004 
 Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan
 Editor: Keith Richards, Aston University
 Editor: Paul Seedhouse
 Hardback: ISBN: 1403942331 Pages: 312 Price: U.K. £ 55
 This book explores the relationship between conversation analysis and
 applied linguistics, demonstrating how the analysis of institutional talk
 can contribute to professional practice. With a foreword by Paul Drew, the
 core of the collection brings together researchers from a wide range of
 applied areas: dealing with topics such as language impairment and speech
 therapy, medical general practice, retailing, cross-cultural training,
 radio journalism, higher education and language teaching and learning.
 More and more academics and professionals now recognise the contribution
 that conversation analysis can make to their work. However, up to now there
 has been little attempt to explore the important relationship between this
 exciting and rapidly growing field and applied linguistics. The
 contributions to this collection, all written  from the analytic
 perspective of CA,  bring together experts from a  range of professional
 fields in order to demonstrate how CA can make a significant contribution
 to professional practice.
 As well as appealing to researchers and students in applied linguistics and
 the social sciences, the book's  practical orientation will also make it
 valuable to specialists in a range of fields, including speech therapy,
 health communication, retailing, journalism and language teaching. The
 combination of academic and analytic rigour with strong practical relevance
 makes the collection essential reading for anyone with a serious interest
 in professional talk.
