Analyzing Conversation

Lecture no. 15 from the course: Language and Society: What Your Speech Says About You

Analyzing Conversation

Taught by Professor Valerie Fridland | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

Whether we realize it or not, conversation is a highly structured interactional event. Study how conversations are organized, defining both our rights and obligations as conversational participants. See how conversation follows specific procedures such as turn-taking, bounded units of talk, speaker/listener cues, and repair of miscommunication.
