This paper explores how non-participants can join in an in-progress conversation. It employs video-recordings of daily workplace interactions. The findings are based on a conversation-analytic, multimodal assay. They center on potential joiners' verbal and embodied practices and underscore how these moves project and perform particular moves targetting work progression.
