Title: Sequence Organization in Interaction
Subtitle: A Primer in Conversation Analysis
Written By: Emanuel A Schegloff
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521532792
Description:

Much of our daily lives are spent talking to one another, in both ordinary
conversation and more specialized settings such as meetings, interviews,
classrooms, and courtrooms. It is largely through conversation that the
major institutions of our society - economy, religion, politics, family and
law - are implemented. This is the first in a new series of books by
Emanuel Schegloff introducing the findings and theories of conversation
analysis. Together, the volumes in the series when published will
constitute a complete and authoritative 'primer' in the subject. The topic
of this first volume is 'sequence organization' - the ways in which
turns-at-talk are ordered and combined to make actions take place in
conversation, such as requests, offers, complaints, and announcements.
Containing many examples from real-life conversations, it will be
invaluable to anyone interested in human interaction and the workings of
conversation.
