Talk-in-interaction: Multilingual perspectives

"Those who teach talk-in-interaction should ensure that their students have access to this collection"

"[Kasper's] contribution as a whole could serve as an agenda for the next generation of CA studies"

"... an outstanding publication that is both penetrating and richly varied."

--Modern Language Journal read the review

Talk-in-interaction: Multilingual perspectives (edited by Gabriele Kasper & Hanh thi Nguyen) offers original studies of interaction in a range of languages and language varieties, including Chinese, English, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Swahili, Thai, and Vietnamese; monolingual and bilingual interactions; and activities designed for second or foreign language learning. Conducted from the perspectives of conversation analysis and membership categorization analysis, the chapters examine ordinary conversation and institutional activities in face-to-face, telephone, and computer-mediated environments.
PRAGMATICS & INTERACTION, a refereed series sponsored by the University of Hawai‘i National Foreign Language Resource Center, publishes research on topics in pragmatics and discourse as social interaction from a wide variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives. P&I particularly welcomes studies on languages spoken in the Asian-Pacific region.
