Title: Language in Time: The Rhythm and Tempo of Spoken Interaction
Written By: Peter Auer
Frank Müller
Elizabeth Couper-Kuhlen
Description:

(Oxford Studies in Sociolinguistics) The authors here promote the
reintroduction of temporality into the description and analysis of spoken
interaction. They argue that spoken words are, in fact, temporal objects
and that unless linguists consider how they are delivered within the
context of time, they will not capture the full meaning of situated
language use. Their approach is rigorously empirical, with analyses of
English, German, and Italian rhythm, all grounded in sequences of actual
talk-in-interaction.
