The book offers a step-by-step approach to the task of describing what is systematic in conversational behaviour. The book is organised as a series of practical exercises, teaching skills such as transcribing verbal interaction and identifying and describing 'special events'. An investigation is made into how participants show awareness of patterns of speech structure (eg taking turns and interrupting).
Talk and its place in our lives; imagining the organization of talk; transcribing the organization of talk; seeing the organization of talk; taking turns in two-party talk; taking turns in multi-party talk; patterns in speech activities; patterns in speech events.
