Co-Constructing Extensive Accounts: Japanese Speakersí Practice With English Speakers

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Previous studies suggested that Japanese speakers perceived American English-speakers as offering detailed accounts in situations in which they considered it appropriate to give an expression of regret and a brief explanation. The analysis of a conversation in which a Japanese and an English speaker engaged in accounting practices reveals, however, that the English speaker did not construct her detailed accounts alone. Instead, the Japanese speaker co-constructed the English speakerís extensive accounts by not explicitly honoring them and by using continuers. The paper suggests that Japanese speakersí view of American English speakers as providing extensive accounts may be formed and reinforced in interactions such as the one analyzed here without their being aware of their own influence on English speakersí behavior.
