Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 157766079X, Paperback)Everyday Conversation fills a specific niche. It introduces in a readable way major concepts for understanding conversationas viewed from the perspective of conversation analysis and, to a lesser extent, speech act theory. Readers benefit from having access to technical concepts otherwise beyond their reach; others will benefit from having a manageable entry point from which to investigate these concepts further. Outstanding features include: illustrates primary discussions by segments of real-life talk; describes conversation predominantly from one perspective--conversation analysis; and offers specific details of conversation patterning in the data segments and the accompanying point-by-point discussions.
