Language in Action synopsis
Direct conversation between two or more people is a universal, and perhaps basic, form of social interaction. It is the main site of social interaction in all cultures and the place where social and cultural meaning is formed.
Face-to-face dialogue between children and parents can also be an important context for social and cognitive development. Given the universality, frequency and importance of conversation in social life, the psychological model of dialogue is required to understand central issues in social and developmental psychology. This book presents a model like this.
The working language offers a critical study of four models of conversation: the code model based on Chomsky's linguistic views. Model speech law of Austin and Searle; the deductive model of Grice, and an Analytic model of conversation for Sacks and Schegloff.
The Brown and Lee Lev Nesson model of literature is also considered in conversation. Using many examples of natural talk and drawing on the positive aspects of the models reviewed, Turnbull suggests a new social model for dialogue, such as social interaction. The research model also describes the social pragmatism that experimental psychologists can use to study conversation. This book will be invaluable for advanced students in psychology,sociology, language,linguistics and communication.
It will also make a brilliant and lively reading for anyone who wants a greater understanding of this basic form of social interaction.
