Abstract:

This book presents one of the first attempts at developing a precise,
grammatically rooted, theory of conversation motivated by data from real
conversations. The theory has descriptive reach from the micro-conversational -
e.g. self-repair at the word level - to macro-level phenomena such as multi-party
conversation and the characterization of distinct conversational genres. It draws
on extensive corpus studies of the British National Corpus, on evidence from
language acquisition, and on computer simulations of language evolution. The
theory provides accounts of the opening, middle game, and closing stages of
conversation. It also offers a new perspective on traditional semantic concerns
such as quantification and anaphora. The Interactive Stance challenges
orthodox views of grammar by arguing that, unless we wish to exclude from
analysis a large body of frequently occurring words and constructions, the right
way to construe grammar is as a system that characterizes types of talk in
interaction.
