Nel senso (che) in Italian
Turn-taking, turn-maintaining and turn-yielding
This chapter examines nel senso (che) ‘in the sense (that)’ in present-day conversational Italian. Speakers can use the resource to start a turn, to extend a turn-in-progress, or to yield a turn to a next speaker. In TCU-beginnings, it is describable as a projector construction, allowing speakers to display continuation of their turn (with a new clause). When extending a turn with nel senso (che), speakers display orientation towards a potential problem of understanding which they prevent by elaborating on their prior talk. In turn- and TCU-initial positions, both nel senso che and nel senso are observed; in turn-final positions only the latter format occurs. The chapter analyzes the syntactic, prosodic, embodied, and praxeological corollaries of the resource.
