“Girl – woman – sorry!”: On the repair and non-repair of consecutive gender categories

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper examines how speakers make and repair consecutive references to third parties using the gender categories ‘girl’, ‘woman’ and ‘lady’. It focuses specifically on instances of ‘same-turn’ or ‘self-initiated self-repair’, in which a speaker marks some aspect of their ongoing talk as problematic and repairs it within the same turn (e.g., “that girl over- that woman over there”). Four analytic sections focus on a particular format of ‘XY’ repairs, in which X is a first gender category and Y is another. The first section examines canonical XY repairs; the second focuses on cases in which the repair segment contains a marked orientation to it. The third section examines cases in which ‘or’ is inserted between the categories. The final section focuses on instances of consecutive alternative reference where no features of repair are present. Both the third and fourth sections therefore consider cases of probable non-repair, or ‘doing’ non-repair. Overall, the paper considers how different formats for producing consecutive alternate gender categories display speakers’ ‘commitment’ to one category or the other, and their relevance for evidencing speakers’ ‘orientation to gender’.
