Prosody and Embodiment in Interactional Grammar Author : Pia Bergmann Publisher : Walter de Gruyter Total Pages : 320 Release : 2013-01-01 ISBN 10 : 9783110295108 ISBN 13 : 3110295105 Language : EN, FR, DE, ES & NL GET BOOK Prosody and Embodiment in Interactional Grammar Book Description: Studies in Interactional Linguistics have provided impressive evidence of the systematic use of vocal, verbal, and visual resources in social interaction. While members of the field have discussed what role these resources play in a grammar of social interaction, they have focused primarily on lexico-syntactic structures. The contributions to the present volume, however, focus on prosody and embodiment, exploring the role prosody plays in interactional meaning-making and how visual-spatial resources such as gesture and gaze relate to the use of verbal and vocal resources. This volume includes contributions on Danish, English, French, German, and Swedish interaction, with a primary focus on Interactional Linguistics and additional work from multimodal corpora. This volume will be of theoretical and methodological interest to readers with a background in Linguistics, Conversation Analysis, and multimodal corpora.
