Abstract:

This monograph provides a micro-analytic description of instances of
requests in everyday German conversation. Using the framework of CA, the
study systematically analyzes the grammatical and syntactical structure of
the request-turn and its response and of the conversational exchanges
before and within the request base sequence, and the placement of the
request sequence within the larger social interaction.

Through an empirical analysis of individual cases of request sequences in
German, the monograph describes in detail: (a) how speakers employ grammar
and syntax as resources to construct turns at talk and accomplish the
social action of request; (b) how speakers use grammatical and syntactical
forms of the language to coordinate the production of the social action of
requests; (c) how speakers use grammar and syntax as interactional
resources to manage affiliative and remedial work (i.e., face work) when
performing delicate social actions such as requests; and (d) how the
context of the request activity impacts the grammatical and syntactical
constructions of speakers' utterances. Additionally, the monograph
demonstrates that both the grammatical construction of turns and their
placement within the talk are oriented to the sequential context of the
interaction.
