Abstract:

Analysing Casual Conversation, first published in 1997 by Cassell and
re-issued now in paperback by Equinox, develops a systematic model for the
analysis and description of casual conversation in English. Working through
authentic examples of casual conversations involving participants differing
in age, gender, ethnicity and socio-economic class, the authors argue that
despite its sometimes aimless appearance and apparently unstructured
content, casual conversation is a highly structured activity and plays a
critical role in the social construction of reality. Drawing on insights
from sociology, linguistics and critical semiotics, the book equips readers
with the analytic skills to describe the layers of structure and critical
interpretive frameworks to explain the 'social work' that goes on through chat.
