Example text

This is an idealized characterization, of course, since turns are frequently overlapped by incoming talk from other speakers, broken off and continued after an interruption,14 or, as we will see in Chapter 4, broken off by one participant and continued by another. All these phenomena make the definition of a turn less straightforward than it may seem at first sight. Deriving from the notion of turn is another analytical category which conversation analysts have found helpful for the interpretation of talkin-interaction: the turn constructional unit (TCU).

These paradigms include conversation analysis, phonology of conversation, and interactional linguistics, all of which are introduced in the following sections. In a subsequent part of this chapter the linguistic units central to the study of prosody in conversation, the intonation unit and the turn, are introduced. Paradigms This work is firmly rooted in the tradition of empirical research on talkin-interaction, a tradition derived from the sociological framework of Ethnomethodology, founded by Harold Garfinkel and his Studies in Ethnomethodology (1967).

Mark’s choice of a strongly animated prosody in his turn I’ve no idea is a repetition of Hatch’s prosodic design, both in intonation contour and pitch register. After a pause of half a second, both Mark and the host begin to speak simultaneously. The pause is potential evidence that Mark had intended to give up the floor after the prosodically orienting reply. Hatch also treats the end of Mark’s orienting turn and the following pause as a transition relevance place. This shows that both speakers treat the prosodic orientation as a turn-ending activity.
