Example text

However, I hope in the following pages to show how a very fine-grained analysis of short extracts of communication can lead to wider and practical insights. Communication does matter. This is not a CA textbook, nor is it a comprehensive guide to discourse analysis. It aims instead to give a glimpse into how the tools of CA can be used and how exciting and relevant the results can be. Readers who want to pursue discourse methodology further are recommended to follow through the details that are offered in each chapter, together with the texts on methodology in the reference list.

By working with transcribed data of detailed conversations, the analyst is enabled to situate the talk in that particular occasion, as it unfolds. Antaki and Widdicombe (1998a) refer to this as occasionedness: A good part of the meaning of an utterance … is to be found in the occasion of its production – in the local state of affairs that was operative at that exact moment of interactional time. (Antaki & Widdicombe, 1998a: 4) This might not seem remarkable, until one considers that much analysis in social research proceeds by taking quotations, out of context, as illustrations of an argument.

This level of analysis can reveal something about the way this conversation is handled, the strategies for enabling someone to speak and how a speaker can express interest in the other person by an ‘oh right’ or an ‘ah’. However, once that is done, the analyst can move beyond what has been noticed and make some wider observations. For instance, it seems here that Meg has the interactional right (Ochs & Taylor, 1992; Shakespeare, 1998) to ask Janet about her activities, while Janet does not reciprocate by asking about Meg’s plans.
