'Conversation analysis' is an approach to the study of social interaction
that focuses on practices of speaking that recur across a range of contexts
and settings. The early studies in this tradition were based on the
analysis of English conversation. More recently, however, conversation
analysts have begun to study talk in a broader range of communities around
the world. Through detailed analyses of recorded conversations, this book
examines differences and similarities across a wide range of languages
including Finnish, Japanese, Tzeltal Mayan, Russian, and Mandarin. Bringing
together interrelated methodological and analytic contributions, it
explores topics such as the role of gaze in question-and-answer sequences,
the organization of repair, and the design of responses to assessments. The
emerging comparative perspective demonstrates how the structure of talk is
inflected by the local circumstances within which it operates.
