Abstract:

Please Note: This is a new, paperback edition of a previously announced book.

This volume provides a detailed analysis of the relationships between form and
function in spontaneous spoken language. The contributors analyse English,
German and Spanish data to present a multilingual perspective on the
complexities facing speakers in a variety of contexts. Through an examination
of the language of everyday conversation, interviews, consultations,
task-based dialogues, football commentaries, radio-play productions and
intercultural conversations, the book demonstrates the effect of
informational, discourse-external and personal factors on form and shows how
speakers position themselves in relation to their discourse, orchestrate
different tasks, move between different 'voices', and negotiate meaning. The
result is a comprehensive analysis of the multiple layers of spontaneous
spoken language. Spoken Language Pragmatics presents research that will be
of interest to academics working in linguistics, applied linguistics,
discourse analysis and pragmatics.
