1. Robinson, Jeffrey. "Using Open-Class Repair Initiation to Comment on the Generic Organization of Conversational Repair" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Hilton Metropole Hotel, London, England, <Not Available>. 2019-12-10 <>
Publication Type: Session Paper
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.’

"ANALYTIC HIERARCHY PROCESS TO SELECT THE SURGICAL APPROACH IN HERNIA REPAIR: LAPAROSCOPIC VERSUS OPEN SURGERY HERNIA REPAIR" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ISAHP, Hilton Paddington Hotel, London, UK, <Not Available>. 2019-12-10 <>

3. Stokoe, Elizabeth. "“Girl – woman – sorry!”: On the repair and non-repair of consecutive gender categories" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association Annual Meeting, Sheraton Boston and the Boston Marriott Copley Place, Boston, MA, Jul 31, 2008 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-12-10 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
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’.
