Series Title: De Gruyter linguae & litterae / Publications of the School of Language and Literature Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies 7
Description:

* Analysis of imagination in conversation from a conversation-analysis
perspective
* Combination of interactional linguistics and cognitive semantics
* Empirical basis (corpus of German and Spanish conversations)

Imagination in conversations: This book explores a mental phenomenon
from a conversation analytic perspective. It analyses sequences from
interactions in which the speakers assume the roles of characters,
animate what they say and put themselves in an imagined scene.
Imagination is understood as conversational activity and mental
phenomenon to establish a shared cognition. The study provides an
important contribution to the topic of imagination and impressively
combines the research fields of interactional linguistics and cognitive
semantics.
