Getting Acquainted in Conversation: A study of initial interactions

Forside
John Benjamins Publishing, 15. feb. 2000 - 384 sider
What makes a getting acquainted a recognizable conversational activity, and how are interpersonal relationships established in a first conversation? This book presents a theoretical framework for the study of relationship management in conversation and an empirical study of a corpus of initial interactions. It provides detailed descriptions of the sequential resources unacquainted interlocutors use in order to:
generate self-presentation
introduce topics
establish common contextual resources
It is argued that these sequential patterns embody conventionalized procedures for establishing an interpersonal relationship involving some degree of:
solidarity (mutual rights and obligations)
familiarity (mutual knowledge of personal background)
mutual affect (emotional commitment)
The sequential analysis is based on a conversation analytic approach, while the interpretive framework consists of pragmatic theories of politeness, conversational style and common ground.
