When we think of grammar, we typically think of how to form correct sentences and how to express meanings such as time, number, quantity, etc. However, we can use grammar to do a lot of other things too. If we look at a corpus of conversations, we can see how people also use grammar to organize the things they say and to create the right relationship with other people in the conversation. In this talk we look at ways that people use tense, word order, and focusing structures to create successful conversations, and we consider how this type of grammar can be taught with practical examples.
