Using Open-Class Repair Initiation to Comment on the Generic Organization of Conversational Repair

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



Abstract:

This project examines the practice of open-class repair initiation – for example, actions implemented by “Huh?,” “What?,” and “Sorry?,” produced with final-rising intonation and ‘unmarked’ (vs. ‘astonished’) prosody – in order to comment on the generic organization of repair in conversation, and specifically it’s role in promoting ‘understanding,’ or the achievement of ‘common ground.’ This project demonstrates that, contrary to a widely held assumption that open-class repair initiators target the whole of a preceding turn as the trouble-source, they are actually treated as targeting only the most proximate, complete turn-constructional unit as the trouble-source. Although CA tends to assume that next-speaker understanding is tacitly displayed en passant in the course of next-turn actions, this project argues that, due to the generic organization of repair, next-speaker understanding is most proximately claimed ex silentio on a unit-by-unit basis, that is, based on a lack of specific evidence, as repair-opportunity spaces are ‘passed up.’
