Abstract:

This volume examines the way participants orient to aspects of their
interactions with others as interpersonally sensitive across an array of
languages and contemporary institutional settings. The individual chapters
address interactional episodes where the participants signal that elements of
the exchanges they are engaged in are problematic in terms of the
vulnerability of their own and/or each other’s face and the role-identities
assumed throughout the interactions. 

The volume contributors examine a range of activities. In some of these, an
orientation to interpersonal sensitivity is expected, such as citizens’
encounters with traffic police officers, negotiations with a line manager,
political news interviews, or public inquiries. Other types of activity, such
as service calls or guided tours, involve no such expectations in and of
themselves. In some cases, the situated vulnerabilities studied here, whether
expected or not, lead to deviation from the expected trajectory of the
communicative event, with implications for goal achievement.

The collection of papers draws on diverse analytic perspectives. These include
interactional discourse analysis, interactional linguistics, and conversation
analysis. The diversity of languages and institutional environments examined
will be of interest to students and scholars with an interest in face-to-face
interaction and serve to stimulate debate in the field of pragmatics and
beyond.
