The book provides a new angle for the study of otherwise amply discussed discourse and interactional phenomena. The new perspective consists in addressing the interconnections between resonance, stance, represented discourse and joking in Mexican conversational discourse. In so doing, it contributes to a better understanding of the interplay between collaboration, intersubjectivity and emergence, among other relevant issues. Scholars and advanced students concerned with dialogic syntax theory, stance theory and Spanish, will find the present analysis interesting and innovative. However, the writing and methodology, based on clearly discussed and presented examples from selected conversational excerpts, including graphic representations of linguistic and discourse data, makes the analysis easy to follow also to non-specialists. The book is thus interesting to a broad circle of readers, whether they are concerned with any of the issues dealt with or with their mutual connections, whether they are specialists or not.

Table of Contents
“Minerva Oropeza-Escobar's work constitutes a substantial contribution to the data-based study of as many as four different interactional phenomena: resonance, stance, represented discourse and joking. [...] by focusing on the remarkably frequent resonant use of represented discourse in such interactions, the author manages to fill a gap in recent interaction-based studies on humor and conversational joking. [...] The book's merits are indeed manifold. It weaves the above perspectives into a coherent framework and convincingly argues for interconnections between them. It does this by presenting numerous excerpts from the Mexican Spanish conversational data. Indeed, the book's best contribution is the insightfulness of the contextual analyses offered of stances taken collaboratively through represented discourse.”
“One of the main strengths of Represented Discourse, Resonance and Stance in Joking Interaction in Mexican Spanish, is the careful attention with which the author attempts to tease apart the theoretical implications of her findings.”
