Abstract:

Cecilia E. Ford explores the question: what work do adverbial clauses do in
conversational interaction? Her analysis of this predominating conjunction
strategy in English conversation is based on the assumption that grammars
reflect recurrent patterns of situated language use, and that a primary
site for language is in spontaneous talk. She considers the interactional
as well as the informational work of talk and shows how conversationalists
use grammar to coordinate their joint language production. The management
of the complexities of the sequential development of a conversation, and
the social roles of conversational participants, have been extensively
examined within the sociological approach of Conversation Analysis. Dr Ford
uses Conversation Analysis as a framework for the interpretation of
interclausal relations in her database of American English conversations.
Her book contributes to a growing body of research on grammar in discourse,
which has until recently remained largely focused on monologic rather than
dialogic functions of language.
