Sample text

To be identified as a practice, particular elements of conduct must be recurrent, specifically situated, and attract responses that discriminate them from related or similar practices. g. using a figurative expression to close down a topic, prefacing an answer to a question with oh, or identifying a co-interactant by name in the course of a turn) can be validated through the examination of others’ responses. In pursuit of the goal of identifying basic interactional and communicative competencies, CA focuses on sequences of actions.

They can be shown to function as part of the signalling system which – together 26 Paul Drew and Traci Curl with syntax, lexico-semantics, kinesics, and other contextualizing cues – is used to construct and interpret turn constructional units and turnsat-talk. (Couper-Kuhlen and Selting 1996: 25) Although we mentioned that research has tended to focus on lexico-syntactic features of talk-in-interaction, it would be more accurate to say that CA has not much investigated grammar in general, or syntax in particular, at all formally or systematically.

Within this framework, the grasp of a ‘next’ action that a current projects, the production of that next action, and its interpretation by the previous speaker – are the products of a common set of socially shared practices. CA analyses are thus simultaneously analyses of action, context management and intersubjectivity – because all three of these features are simultaneously, if tacitly, the objects of the participants’ actions. Based on this framework, CA has developed as an empirical discipline focused on a range of domains of interactional conduct, including turntaking (the allocation of opportunities to speak among participants), the organization of conversational sequences, the internal structuring of turns at talk and the formation of actions, the organization of repair (dealing with difficulties in speaking, hearing and understanding talk), story-telling and narrative, phonetic and prosodic aspects of talk, body behaviour and so on.
