We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Subject: Meta-interactional locutions 
 

Dear Colleagues,

I am interested in 'meta-interactive' formula or locutions that are suited
to address different problems in conversation, especially problems related
to turn-taking. My question is: what kind of conventional expressions could
be used:

a) to comment on a contrubution that does not orient (properly) to a prior
contribution; in CA-terms, a contribution that is not a recognizable
'second' (e.g., a question seeks and answer, an evaluation seeks comment or
agreement, etc.).

b) to comment on an interruption of a speaker's turn, e.g. comments like
'you're interrupting me!', 'it's my (his/her) turn'.

I am interested in locutions and strategies dealing with the above problems
in different languages (and cultures). Idiomatic, metaphorical, routinized
as well as less fixed but conceivable everyday expressions are of interest.

This query relates to an earlier one about formula adressing non-replies
and which was summarized last week.

Thankful for any kind of help,

Jan Lindstrom

Hello, 

 I am looking for a copy of Rene van den Berg's 1991 article Muna dialects
and Munic languages: Towards a reconstruction. Does anyone have a copy of
this email? Or if not, Professor van den Berg's email address? I've been
looking around for it, but have come up empty
