Studies in Interactional Linguistics have provided impressive evidence of the
systematic use of vocal, verbal, and visual resources in social interaction.
While members of the field have discussed what role these resources play in a
grammar of social interaction, they have focused primarily on lexico-syntactic
structures. The contributions to the present volume, however, focus on prosody
and embodiment, exploring the role prosody plays in interactional
meaning-making and how visual-spatial resources such as gesture and gaze
relate to the use of verbal and vocal resources. This volume includes
contributions on Danish, English, French, German, and Swedish interaction,
with a primary focus on Interactional Linguistics and additional work from
multimodal corpora. This volume will be of theoretical and methodological
interest to readers with a background in Linguistics, Conversation Analysis,
and multimodal corpora.
