Much of our daily lives are spent talking to one another, in both ordinary conversation and more specialized settings such as meetings, interviews, classrooms, and courtrooms. It is largely through conversation that the major institutions of our society - economy, religion, politics, family and law - are implemented. This book Emanuel Schegloff, the first in a series and first published in 2007, introduces the findings and theories of conversation analysis. Together, the volumes in the series constitute a complete and authoritative 'primer' in the subject. The topic of this first volume is 'sequence organization' - the ways in which turns-at-talk are ordered and combined to make actions take place in conversation, such as requests, offers, complaints, and announcements. Containing many examples from real-life conversations, it will be invaluable to anyone interested in human interaction and the workings of conversation.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
'… Schegloff's analysis of multiple redoings of first pair parts … is one of the most fascinating CA analyses I have read for some time. Throughout the analysis, Schegloff shows what may happen and how it may happen when one does not want to accept an offer. … Schegloff's examples are also available as audio and video files at the Cambridge University Press website, which is a great bonus for those who want to watch, listen and analyze the extracts alongside the analyses in the book.'
