Multimodality and coordinated participation in L2 interaction
A conversation-analytic perspective
This study focuses on video-recorded language and bodily conduct (gesture, gaze and body posture) of L2 speakers in naturalistic conversations. Taking a conversation analytical approach, the chapter explores the details of ways L2 speakers manage talk, accomplish social actions and maintain intersubjectivity in non-institutional conversation. The chapter describes how L2 speakers systematically mobilize various modalities (e.g. talk, gaze, prosody, gesture), to constitute and coordinate a coherent course of action. In addition, the study illustrates how L2 speakers, while engaged in multiple repair practices, display via vocal resources (e.g. syntax, vocabulary, prosody) and embodied resources (e.g. gesture, gaze, body posture) their understanding of the nature of the problem and signal their orientation as L2 learners and members of a learners’ community.
