An initial description of syntactic extensions in spoken Czech more. This paper aims to describe different patterns of syntactic extensions of turns-at-talk in mundane conversations in Czech. Within interactional linguistics, same-speaker continuations of possibly complete syntactic structures have been Within interactional linguistics, same-speaker continuations of possibly complete syntactic structures have been described for typologically diverse languages, but have not yet been investigated for Slavic languages.
While all previously described forms for continuing a turn-constructional unit seem to exist in Czech, some grammatical features of this language especially free word order and strong case morphology may lead to problems in distinguishing specific types of syntactic extensions. Consequently, this type of language allows for critically evaluating the cross-linguistic validity of the different categories and underlines the necessity of analysing syntactic phenomena within their specific action contexts.

Within the framework of ethnomethodology and conversation analysis, this article tackles the online production of broadcasted talk, showing how it is accomplished in a situated and embodied way, supported by the use of various technological artefacts in the studio. Our contribution thus aims to situate radio talk in its material, ecological context and to approach it within the process of its production rather than as a finished product.
The analysis focuses on moments immediately preceding broadcasted talk by the animators, i. They specify or confirm last decisions to be taken as regards the form and distribution of their turns on air, they grab their headphones and put them on, manipulate the microphone, and make some last technical adjustments at the mixing desk. This moment reveals the technological through the mobilisation of several artefacts and interactional through the implementation of processes of coordination and mutual adjustments arrangements that generate broadcasted live talk.
As open class repair initiators OCRIs, e. Based on videotaped international business meetings and interactions at a customs post, this paper investigates various open class and embodied other-initiations of repair. By means of a conversation analytical and multimodal approach to social interaction, this contribution focuses first on instances of audible OCRIs and illustrates that they are accompanied by embodied conduct.
The analysis shows that participants treat these as referring either to troubles in hearing display 1 or to troubles in understanding the linguistic format display 2. This leads to the formulation of further desiderata and analytical challenges regarding the multimodal other-initiation of repair in general and in professional international settings in particular.

Moreover, it explores the implications of transforming the pronunciation into a laughable in terms of the organization of the ongoing activity, changing participation frameworks and membership categorizations. In this sense, it highlights the flexible structure of groups and the way in which laughter reconfigures them through local affiliating and disaffiliating moves, and by making various national categories available and relevant.

Journal of Pragmatics Embodied withdrawal after overlap resolution more. While it While it is appropriate to analyze the practice of dropping out of overlap as a verbal and thus audible phenomenon, a close look at video data reveals that withdrawing from an action trajectory is also an embodied practice.
Based on a fine-grained multimodal analysis C. Indeed, participants do not instantly withdraw from their action trajectory when they stop talking. By using bodily resources, they are able to display continuous monitoring of the availability of their co-participants and of the next possible slot for resuming their suspended action. I therefore suggest analyzing the drop out of overlap as the first step of withdrawal, as definitive, embodied withdrawal can occur later, or, in case of resumption, not at all. Consequently, my paper analyzes withdrawal as a good example of strengthening the analytic concept of embodiment with regard to turn-taking practices in interaction.
This article studies an excerpt taken from a radio show during which two presenters do a heterosexual coming out on the occasion of the international coming out day October Within the framework of ethnomethodology and conversation analysis, the study discusses the sequential format of the coming out episode, along with other instances gathered from other media settings. Although the coming out has been largely discussed within gender studies, up to now it has not been analysed in its interactional details on the basis of documented occurrences.
The paper further shows how this occurrence of coming out is at the service of a radio show on precisely this issue, and how the presenters then collectively prepare and put into practice their broadcasted show. Thanks to a video recording of the work in the studio, we will describe how the topic of the international coming out day is produced and orchestrated backstage. This aims at contributing, from an interactional sequential perspective, to gender studies, elaborating on the epistemology of the closet dear to Eve Sedgwick, by offering an anatomy of coming out that shows epistemic as well as other issues, related to hetero- and homo-normativity, publicization and spectacularisation.

The name chosen for this genre already suggests the idea of movement, and specifically a constant and unceasing movement. And both these strategies have been indicated as the clearest signals that a genre is losing its power to depict an era, and its hero. These words do not have to be taken as another attempt at indicating a possible death of the novel as the many that have been pronounced already , but they rather point towards the evidence that if the epic project is to take a new form, and one that could speak for the subaltern hero of contemporary postcolonial literary works, this cannot be the novel as it was conceived in modern Europe.
Some of the forms chosen are indeed shared by both fields, but postcolonial authors have used them with different implications. And these motivations derive directly from the very different realities and subjects that postcolonial writers intend to represent. Conclusion 51 Through the subjects and the forms of these works we can perceive a line in the transformation of the epic project, both in the genre used and in the subjects and realities represented, which brings us from the epic poem to the modern novel and from the modern novel to postcolonial narratives.
On a narrative level this depends on the characteristics of these heroes, often semi-divine beings, links between the human and the divine world, who are able to go beyond the limits of mankind to challenge the gods or the demons themselves, or at least speak to them almost on a level of equality; ideologically, however, heroes of this kind are shaped on purpose to fulfil the need of an undisputed and incontestable absolute truth, rooted in the past, that serves the whole community these heroes belong to, and often all of mankind. The heroes of the modern novel are confronted with a much more concrete micro-reality, and the need to fight their own way through the world as individuals to achieve their success, but their journeys still have the pace of those who are sure of their own righteousness, who have faith in constant progress and evolution, and who believe in the present because of the future it will grant them.
However, the present chosen by the modern novel is also a time of deprivation for the subjects of postcolonial writing, since their individual rights and the rights of their communities are constantly denied in a present, in which their lives and freedom are constantly at stake, and in which their epic challenges consist mostly of fighting their way out of these limits imposed upon them by society.
The time of these subjects can thus neither be the past of ancient epic, nor the present of the modern novel, but rather the hope of a different future they are constantly longing for. He writes: A literary genre, the same as a zoological species, means a certain stock of possibilities; and since in art only those possibilities count which are different enough not to be considered replicas of one another, the resources of a literary genre are definitely limited. It is erroneous to think of the novel—and I refer to the modern novel in particular—as of an endless field capable of rendering ever new forms.
Rather it may be compared to a vast but finite quarry. What happens, in fact, is not a different epistemological and ideological change, but rather a perpetuation of the same challenging of authority: the subjects of this new genre are in fact those to which the social mobility characteristic of the heroes of the modern novel was denied, mostly because of their race, a social construct that became decisive for the lives of millions of people, also through pseudoscientific pseudo-empirical hypotheses which have by now totally been proven to be false.
Postcolonial narratives bring this change further, because they consciously refuse to speak that final word, since no final word can be found for the postcolonial reality. If the epic poem was a verse narrative about readily recognizable heroes, mostly in between human beings and divine entities, and referring to a national heroic past, and the modern novel was a prose narrative about a new kind of heroes who are common individuals using their own abilities to improve their lives in the present, what the postcolonial contemporary epic is offering is an irregular prose narrative which focuses on subaltern heroes whose epic struggles defy the limits imposed upon them by a society which disregards them and their own right to be represented, to achieve something in and for the future.
What Is Epic? Epic As Genre and the Epic Project. A quick review of the definitions of epic shows how the concept behind this word is probably easier to understand than to outline clearly; most of them focus on either the stylistic traits of the genre, or on the main themes and the characteristics of its protagonists. Once we have distinguished between the epic as a genre and the epic as a project, it is certainly easier to understand that the decay of the epic poem does not entail a decay of the epic project, which is as present as ever, but rather a transformation of its characteristics.
As Michael McKeon writes:. Conceived as integral structures, genres have a temporal and spatial existence that defines the scope of their identity; conceived as parts of greater wholes, genres have a structural existence in relation to other integral formations. According to Bakhtin, who dedicated the first essay of his Dialogic Imagination to the opposition between the epic and the novel, this modern genre has a completely different distance from its subject of representation:.
The novel took shape precisely at the point when epic distance was disintegrating, when both the world and man were assuming a degree of comic familiarity, when the object of artistic representation was being degraded to the level of a contemporary reality that was inconclusive and fluid.
This passage also shows once more the importance of the context; the decay of the epic and the rise of the novel have been caused in fact by a deep epistemological and ideological shift which challenged absolute authority both in the fields of knowledge thanks to the new scientific method and to empiricism and in the fields of experience thanks to the newly-acquired possibility of social mobility , and which was also reflected in the changes of scope, thematic and subject of the modern epic represented in the modern novel.
If the epic figures are invented, if they are unique and incomparable natures, which in themselves have poetic value, the characters of the novel are typical and nonpoetic; they are taken, not from the myth, which is already an aesthetic and creative element or atmosphere, but from the street, from the physical world, from the living environment of the author and the reader.
The passage from the epic to the novel is also a passage from the past to the present. It must be said that the evolution and the rise of the novel is as strictly related to the historical changes in Europe, as it is to the formation of empires outside of Europe. Without empire, I would go as far as saying, there is no European novel as we know it, and indeed if we study the impulses giving rise to it, we shall see the far from accidental convergence between the patterns of narrative authority constitutive of the novel on the one hand, and, on the other, a complex ideological configuration underlying the tendency to imperialism.
CI It is no surprise, therefore, that postcolonial writers have manifested a certain discomfort in using the novel as the form of their own narration, which has brought them to a much wider use of other genres, or to the reinterpretation of the structure of the novel through forms that have at times pushed the limits of the genre so far, that it is hard to recognize them as novels.

Alors, quoi? Vous viendrez, n'est-ce pas? The hero of the postcolonial epic is therefore neither the superhuman semi-divine hero of ancient epics, nor the common man climbing the social ladder of the first modern novels, but rather a subaltern hero, whose epic challenge consists mostly in fighting his or her way out of the limits imposed upon him or her by a society, largely shaped through the paradigm of the protagonists of the modern novel.
