Abstract:

Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced text.

"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.

Review of the hardback: 'Hooray! This is what we've been waiting for - a
genuinely cross-linguistic perspective on the ways
in which semiotic resources, including language and the body, are mobilized
for the resolution of recurrent tasks in interaction.'

Review of the hardback: 'Not only does this remarkable book represent a
major collection of cross-linguistic work in "Conversation Analysis", but the
contributions, all by world-renowned scholars, covering ten languages,
together form a stunning and important picture of the ways in which the
resources of any particular language afford possibilities for social action
accomplished through talk.'
