Title: L2 Interactional Competence and Development
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847694058
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition
Description:

Drawing on data from a range of contexts, including classrooms, pharmacy
consultations, tutoring sessions, and video-game playing, and a range of
languages including English, German, French, Danish and Icelandic, the studies
in this volume address challenges suggested by these questions: What kinds of
interactional resources do L2 users draw on to participate competently and
creatively in their L2 encounters? And how useful is conversation analysis in
capturing the specific development of individuals’ interactional competencies in
specific practices across time? Rather than treating participants in L2
interactions as deficient speakers, the book begins with the assumption that
those who interact using a second language possess interactional
competencies. The studies set out to identify what these competencies are and
how they change across time. By doing so, they address some of the difficult
and yet unresolved issues that arise when it comes to comparing actions or
practices across different moments in time.
