Studies in Interactional Linguistics have provided impressive evidence of thesystematic use of vocal, verbal, and visual resources in social interaction.While members of the field have discussed what role these resources play in agrammar of social interaction, they have focused primarily on lexico-syntacticstructures. The contributions to the present volume, however, focus on prosodyand embodiment, exploring the role prosody plays in interactionalmeaning-making and how visual-spatial resources such as gesture and gazerelate to the use of verbal and vocal resources. This volume includescontributions on Danish, English, French, German, and Swedish interaction,with a primary focus on Interactional Linguistics and additional work frommultimodal corpora. This volume will be of theoretical and methodologicalinterest to readers with a background in Linguistics, Conversation Analysis,and multimodal corpora.
