Follow-ups in interpreter-mediated interviews and press conferences
This chapter investigates the nature of follow-ups in interpreter-mediated interaction. The data come from international press conferences and interviews. The involvement of an interpreter as an active participant in the exchange between politicians and journalists has consequences for analysing question – response – follow-up patterns. Follow-ups are understood here in the wider sense of thematic progression and speaker positioning towards prior talk. The chapter illustrates effects of interpreter-mediated encounters on role construction and positioning of politicians. It also illustrates how different interpreting modes and institutional arrangements influence the flow of the interaction and subsequent recontextualisation processes such as the transfer of a press conference to news reports. It is argued that multiple and multilingual data can enrich the analysis and may lead to different interpretations, also in respect of follow-ups.
