Increments in cross-linguistic perspective
A new area of research called Interactional Linguistics highlights linguistic structure in relation to naturally occurring interaction and is characterized by its cross-linguistic orientation. As a contribution to this new area of research, the present volume is a collection of papers with a cross-linguistic focus; they examine what is often called an ‘increment’, a grammatical extension of the already completed unit. In this paper, we briefly discuss frameworks and orientations adopted by these studies, as well as some overall themes and common issues.
