This volume is a collection of current work at the interface of linguistics
and conversation analysis. The focus is on linguistic items in their action
contexts: syntactic structures and lexical items in data from natural
conversations in six European languages: Danish, English, Finnish, German,
Italian and Swedish. Some of the studies deal with similar practices in two
different languages, which enables cross-linguistic comparisons. The notion
of 'construction' is brought together with an interactional perspective;
the fact that constructions cannot always be clearly analysed as either
syntactic or lexico-semantic has its reflection in this volume.

So far, there have been fewer attempts at interactionally oriented work on
lexical and semantic phenomena than on syntactic constructions. In this
volume, several papers show the interactional relevance of word selection
and lexical semantic issues. In the future, studies on syntax and
lexico-semantics in interaction will enrich realistic grammars of our
languages, and cross-linguistic description of comparable practices of
organizing talk in interaction will be invaluable for the study of both
inter-European and international communication.
