Abstract:

The study describes a detailed and original piece of research work,
investigating a very important genre of human communication, and that is
conversation. It provides a definition of the genre of conversation by
describing nine features of conversation, namely multiple sources,
discourse coherence, language as doing, co-operation, unfolding,
open-endedness, artifacts, inexplicitness and shared responsibility. These
nine features of naturalness in conversation serve to distinguish
conversation from specialized discourse types. The study illustrates the
nine defining features of conversation with authentic conversational data
collected surreptitiously in England. While this study is of native
speakers of English, the nine defining features of naturalness of English
conversation are applicable to conversations conducted in other languages.
