Qs: Discourse Analysis Textbooks with Movie and Sound Files

Editor for this issue: Danielle St. Jean <daniellelinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.cfm.

We have a Professor who urgently needs to locate books similar to
Emanuel Schegloff's "Sequence Organization in Interaction." Here is a
link to this book's information:


The book also comes with data files. These data files are film clips
which accompany transcribed dialogues in the book itself. Can you
help me identify similar titles which come with such data files? Our
professor needs to use such books for his course.

The materials (video clips of real-life conversations together with
accompanying transcripts) are needed for teaching and class use.
Titles such as "Sequence Organization in Interaction" by Emanuel
Schegloff contain video clips of real-life conversations and interactions
and these go together with the accompanying transcripts in the book.
The video clips are important as body language and other
paralinguistic cues are important features to look out for in
conversation analysis. Eg. Chicken dinner (a dinner conversation)


The students will be studying the video clips and the transcriptions in

I hope that you can help me out with suggestions for similar sources
that include materials like those described above.

Thank you very much.
