Title: Football, Language and Linguistics
Subtitle: Time-critical Utterances in Unplanned Spoken Language, Their Structures and Their Relation to Non-linguistic Situations and Events
Written By: Torsten Müller
URL: http://www.narr.de/isbn.php?isbn=978-3-8233-6356-9
Series Title: Language in Performance 36
Description:

This study presents a new approach to the analysis of spoken language. Its
aims are threefold: to make systematic use of video material in order to
demonstrate that the conditions under which language is produced are
crucial for its structure. Secondly, to show that timing - the moment an
utterance is made in relation to the event it describes - also shapes the
linguistic output, and thirdly, to show that verbless structures are an
integral part of spoken language. Their occurrence can be linked to
specific extra-linguistic situations and event types. The data consists of
English and German language live radio broadcasts of international football
games and video material containing the corresponding TV footage to
determine the extra-linguistic events that are referred to in the radio
commentaries.
