Title: Prosody in Interaction
Edited By: Dagmar Barth-Weingarten

Series Title: Studies in Discourse and Grammar 23
Description:

Prosody is constitutive for spoken interaction. In more than 25 years, its
study has grown into a full-fledged and very productive field with a sound
catalogue of research methods and principles. This volume presents the
state of the art, illustrates current research trends and uncovers
potential directions for future research. It will therefore be of major
interest to everyone studying spoken interaction. The collection brings
together an impressive range of internationally renowned scholars from
different, yet closely related and compatible research traditions which
have made a significant contribution to the field. They cover issues such
as the units of language, the contextualization of actions and activities,
conversational modalities and genres, the display of affect and emotion,
the multimodality of interaction, language acquisition and aphasia. All
contributions are based on empirical, audio- and/or video-recorded data of
natural talk-in-interaction, including languages such as English, German
and Japanese. The methodologies employed come from Ethnomethodology,
Conversation Analysis and Interactional Linguistics.
