Title: The Pragmatics of Interaction
Edited By: Sigurd D'hondt
Jan-Ola Östman

Series Title: Handbook of Pragmatics Highlights 4
Description:

The ten volumes of Handbook of Pragmatics Highlights focus on the
most salient topics in the field of pragmatics, thus dividing its wide
interdisciplinary spectrum in a transparent and manageable way. While the
other volumes select specific philosophical, cognitive, grammatical,
social, cultural, variational, or discursive angles, this fourth volume is
dedicated to the empirical investigation of the way human beings organize
their interaction in natural environments and how they use talk for
accomplishing actions and their contexts. Starting from Goffman's
observation that interaction exhibits a structure in its own right that
cannot be reduced to the psychological properties of the individual nor to
society, it contains a selection of articles documenting the various levels
of interactional organization. In addition to treatments of basic concepts
such as sequence, participation, prosody and style and some topical
articles on phenomena like reported speech and listener response, it also
includes overviews of specific traditions (conversation analysis,
ethnomethodology) and articles on eminent authors (Goffman, Sacks) who had
a formative influence on the field.
