Abstract:

How do participants display affectivity in social interaction? Based on
recordings of authentic everyday conversations and radio phone-ins, this study
offers a fine-grained analysis of how recipients of affect-laden informings deploy
sound objects, i.e. interjections ('oh', 'ooh' and 'ah') and paralinguistic signals
('whistle' and 'clicks'), for responsive displays of affectivity. Examining the use
of such sound objects across a number of interactional activities including news
telling, troubles talk, complaining, assessments and repair, the study provides
evidence that the sound pattern and sequential placement of sound objects
systematically contribute to their specific meaning-making in interaction, i.e. the
management of sequence organisation and interactional relevancies (e.g.
affiliation). Presenting an in-depth analysis of a little researched area of
language use from an interactional linguistic perspective, the book will be of
theoretical and methodological interest to an audience with a background in
linguistics, sociology and conversational studies.
