Wait. That ain’t right: addressing epistemic asymmetry through other-initiated repair – Trevor Benjamin & Traci Walker


Recorded 19th December 2011 at Loughborough’s Conversation Analysis Day. The theme for that years meeting was “Asymmetries in Interaction”. Trevor describes situations where people address an incongruity — that something a person believes, feels, knows differs from what has been said gets handled in interaction. He specifically focuses on moments which halt progressivity and initiate repair, exploring how the phonetic design of repair targets the inappropriateness of the turn.
