Conversation Analysis

Conversation Analysis
The Study of Talk-in-Interaction

Volume: 35

November 1994 | 96 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Conversation analysis has contributed enormously to the understanding of social life, social structure, the meaning ascribed by individuals to interaction, and the rules and structures of conversation. George Psathas' succinct introduction outlines its procedures and its major accomplishments, with discussions on verbal sequence, institutional constraints on interaction and the deep structure of talk.
The Study of Interaction
Discovering Sequences in Interaction
Sequence and Structure in Interaction
The Methodological Perspective of Conversation Analysis
Talk and Social Structure

This book is a classic, and is, despite its age, still an important source for anyone interested in conversation analysis. However, as course book, there are other, newer books that are didactically more fit to undergraduate classes.
