Discursive Research in Practice: New Approaches to Psychology and Interaction
Alexa Hepburn, Sally Wiggins
Cambridge University Press, Jul 12, 2007 - Psychology
Over the past few decades new ways of conceiving the relation between people, practices and institutions have been developed, enabling an understanding of human conduct in complex situations that is distinctive from traditional psychological and sociological conceptions. This distinctiveness is derived from a sophisticated analytic approach to social action which combines conversation analysis with the fresh treatment of epistemology, mind, cognition and personality developed in discursive psychology. This text is the first to showcase and promote this new method of discursive research in practice. Featuring contributions from a range of international academics, both pioneers in the field and exciting new researchers, this book illustrates an approach to social science issues that cuts across the traditional disciplinary divisions to provide a rich participant-based understanding of action.

There is still the problem of showing from the details of the talk or other conduct in the materials that we are analyzing that those aspects of the scene are what the parties are oriented to. For that is to show how the parties are embodying for one another the relevancies of the interaction and are thereby producing the social structure.
Page 2 - ... Question marks signal stronger, 'questioning', intonation, irrespective of grammar. Periods (full stops) mark falling, stopping intonation ('final contour'), irrespective of grammar, and not necessarily followed by a pause. Hyphens mark a cut-off of the preceding sound. 'Greater than' and 'less than' signs enclose speeded-up talk. Sometimes used the other way round for slower talk. 'Equals' signs mark the immediate 'latching' of successive talk, whether of one or more speakers, with no interval.
