Discussing Conversation Analysis
The work of Emanuel A. Schegloff
- What is the status of fine-grained empirical studies of human interaction in CA and how does CA relate to other approaches to linguistic interaction?
- What is Schegloff’s contribution to CA and how does his work relate to that of Goffman, Garfinkel, and Sacks?
- How does CA distinguish its own analytical tools and terms from the categories of the participants in talk?
- What can CA reveal about human-computer interaction?
- What can CA contribute to the neurosciences in the study, diagnosis, and treatment of linguistically impaired individuals?
- How does CA account for the socio-historical dimension of the material and semiotic resources that participants co-deploy in talk?
By addressing these and other questions this volume proposes a critical guide to CA and its applications with an extraordinary interview with Emanuel A. Schegloff, and new contributions towards a debate on his work by six commentators — conversation analysts (John Heritage and Charles Goodwin), critics (Rick Iedema and Pär Segerdahl) and appliers of CA in the study of human-computer interaction (Pirkko Raudaskoski) and language disorders (Ruth Lesser).
Schegloff’s Response and a closing discussion with the editors conclude the volume, which also features a comprehensive bibliography of his work edited by Susan Eerdmans.
