Abstract:

This edited volume brings together the latest research on fictive interaction,
that is the use of the frame of ordinary conversation as a means to structure
cognition (talking to oneself), discourse (monologues organized as dialogues),
and grammar (“why me? attitude”). This follows prior work on the subject by
Esther Pascual and other authors, most of whom are also contributors to this
volume.

The 17 chapters in the volume explore fictive interaction as a fundamental
cognitive phenomenon, as a ubiquitous discourse-structuring device, as a
possibly universal linguistic construction, and as an effective communicative
strategy in persuasion and language pathology. The data discussed involve a
wide variety of unrelated languages (spoken and signed) and modes of
communication (oral, written, visual), across cultural contexts and historical
time.

The research presented combines linguistics and cognitive science, while
bridging the gap between core grammatical studies and modern conversation and
discourse analysis. The volume further reaches across what may be the most
basic divide in linguistics: that between descriptive, theoretical, and
applied linguistics.
