Prosody as a resource for the organisation of interaction: a review and some illustrations
2017, Vol. XXII-2, pp. 33-52
This article takes stock of the current state of research on the connections between prosody and the organisation of social interaction. An overview is given of central studies of prosodic and phonetic design and its procedural relevance for interaction, along three lines of inquiry: the management of turns, sequence organisation, and action formation. For each of these issues, illustrative analyses based on French data are also presented.
