Title: Represented Discourse, Resonance and Stance in Joking Interaction in Mexican Spanish
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=P%26amp%3Bbns%20204
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 204
Description:

The book provides a new angle for the study of otherwise amply discussed
discourse and interactional phenomena. The new perspective consists in
addressing the interconnections between resonance, stance, represented
discourse and joking in Mexican conversational discourse. In so doing, it
contributes to a better understanding of the interplay between
collaboration, intersubjectivity and emergence, among other relevant
issues. Scholars and advanced students concerned with dialogic syntax
theory, stance theory and Spanish, will find the present analysis
interesting and innovative. However, the writing and methodology, based on
clearly discussed and presented examples from selected conversational
excerpts, including graphic representations of linguistic and discourse
data, makes the analysis easy to follow also to non-specialists. The book
is thus interesting to a broad circle of readers, whether they are
concerned with any of the issues dealt with or with their mutual
connections, whether they are specialists or not.
