Sample text

The First Officer is carrying out the Captain’s request of him to confirm the correct taxiway (line 12). Such overlap is also rarely seen in routine data (Nevile 2004a). The Captain’s talk can increase the demands on the First Officer because he is now being spoken to while he is talking to someone else. 2) second silence (line 15). These last three segments show overlapping talk occurring when pilots treated some matter as uncertain and needing resolution.

A certain awakening of how grammar and interaction intersect came with the publication (like its companion volume by Couper-Kuhlen and Selting on prosody, also in 1996) of a collection focusing on the ways in which the grammar and syntax of various languages are employed to perform various different practices in conversation (Ochs et al. 1996). Since then, a small number of studies have begun to explore how the syntax of turn construction plays a systematic part in determining both the actions which are accomplished in turns, and the precise affordances (including inferential character) of those designs/actions (examples are Heritage 2002b and Tanaka 1999).

We see, then, that in each case, the offer is made through the selection of a particular syntactic form: syntax is as much part of turn design as is the choice of words, or prosodic features and so on. These three syntactic forms – conditionals, Do you want interrogatives and declaratives (and related formats) – were the most commonly occurring in our data corpus. In order to investigate the interactional contingencies that may be associated with a given form, which can often be pretty close to the interactional ‘functions’ of a form or practice, we can do what Sacks termed ‘distributionalize’ a phenomenon/form (Sacks 1974).
