Abstract:

"A unique view of language studies throughout the 20th and into the 21st
centuries: where the mainstream emphasis has been, what has been missing,
and what remedies are needed.  In other words, this book is a call for a
paradigm shift in the study of oral communication.  It is a must read for
people interested in language use, as well as for specialists in language
studies." 
 - Camelia Suleiman, Ph.D., Florida International University, Miami, FL, USA

"The authors have identified crucial theoretical and methodological
assumptions that have hampered scholarship on language use. Their critical
assessment is grounded in nuanced theoretical analysis and rigorous
empirical studies. As a result, they reveal the complexity, elegance, and
moral aspects of day to day dialogical communication." 
 - Kevin P. Weinfurt, Ph.D., Duke University, Durham, NC, USA

In contrast to traditional approaches of mainstream psycholinguists, the
authors of Communicating with One Another approach spontaneous spoken
discourse as a dynamic process, rich with structures, patterns, and rules
other than conventional grammar and syntax. Daniel C. O'Connell and Sabine
Kowal thoroughly critique mainstream psycholinguistics, proposing instead a
shift in theoretical focus from experimentation to field observation, from
monologue to dialogue, and from the written to the spoken. They invoke four
theoretical principles: intersubjectivity, perspectivity, open-endedness,
and verbal integrity. Their analyses of historical and original research
raise significant questions about the relationship between spoken and
written discourse, particularly with regard to transcription and
punctuation. With emphasis on political discourse, media interviews, and
dramatic performance, the authors review both familiar and unexplored
characteristics of spontaneous spoken communication, including:

*The speaker's use of prosody
*The functions of interjections
*What fillers do for a living
*Turn-taking: Smooth and otherwise
*Laughter, applause, and booing: from individual listener to collective
audience
*Pauses, silence, and the art of listening

The paradigm shift proposed in Communicating with One Another will interest
and provoke readers concerned about communicative language use - including
psycholinguists, sociolinguists, and anthropological linguists.
