This course aims to introduce Conversation Analysis as a systematic study of everyday conversation and enable the students to apply the conversation-analytic concepts and skills in describing and analyzing naturally-occurring conversational data. It will cover two perspectives on conversation: conversational organizations and conversational actions.
There are practical workshops and guided work on authentic data which involve listening to and analyzing tapes and transcripts of actual conversations. The model and methodology used are those established by the American pioneers in the field, H. Sacks, E. Schegloff and G. Jefferson.
Students of this course are expected to master the basic concepts of the subject and be able to apply them to analyzing actual spoken data.
