Getting Acquainted in Conversation A study of initial interactions

Innbundet / 1999 / Engelsk
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 resourcesIt 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.
