Abstract:

'Conversation in Context' examines real-life speech data from the British
National Corpus to show how language is used in natural conversation. The
monograph describes the composition, annotation and transcription of the
corpus, as well as providing a discussion of the methodology used in corpus
analysis. The book uses a situational framework for conversation and argues
that conversation is adapted to constraints set by the situation and to
speaker needs arising from these constraints. Such a contextual view
reveals a greater complexity to conversation construction than could have
been anticipated without the use of corpus-based methods.

This book will be of interest to academics researching corpus linguistics,
discourse analysis and sociolinguistics.
