Sociolinguistics from the Periphery

By Sari Pietikäinen, Alexandra Jaffe, Helen Kelly-Holmes, Nik Coupland

Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users"


Book Information

   

Title: Laughter in Interaction
Written By: Phillip J. Glenn
URL: http://www.cup.org/linguistics
Series Title: Studies in Interactional Sociolinguistics 18
Description:

Bringing together twenty-five years of research on the sequential
organization of laughter in everyday talk, Phillip Glenn analyzes
recordings and transcripts to indicate the finely-detailed coordination of
human laughter. He demonstrates that its occurrence, relative to talk and
other activities, reveals much about its emergent meaning and effects. The
book considers laughter's significant role in how people display, respond
to, and revise identities and relationships.
