Description

This book examines turn-taking in English and Japanese conversations and political news interviews to investigate the relationship between language and interaction.

Reviews

"…the book presents detailed analysis of the data from multiple angles in a highly organized manner. It provides empirical evidence as to how English and Japanese turn-taking is structured in two distinct speech situations." -- Ryuko Kubota, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
