Abstract:

This book examines the kinds of talk that service providers working in various
settings (e.g. doctors, healthcare providers, helpline call takers, tourist
officers) seek to avoid in their interactions with clients, when such talk may
be expected or due in some way. The studies utilise Conversation Analysis to
demonstrate how participants use the interactional practices of avoidance and
withholding to construct specific activities as restricted. The various
authors also show how, in contributing to the restricted character of certain
activities, withholding and avoidance in turn contribute to both the
accomplishment of the particular work of the specific organisations and to the
construction of the specific institutional identities of the professionals.
Overall, the collection offers an authoritative account of restriction and
avoidance in workplace interaction.
