Apologies for 'Talk' Offences
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
I'm hoping you will be able to point me in the direction of any work done, particularly within Conversation Analysis, on interlocutors apologising for things like interrupting, mistiming their turn, or having to correct themselves (/engaging in repair work). I am currently working on interaction at public inquiries and there are a number of examples of politicians producing conventional apology tokens for such 'offences' and I am struggling to find literature which discusses this behaviour in everyday conversation. I'll post a summary of replies to the list.
Many thanks in advance,
