' ... an excellent contribution to a rapidly growing field, which is extremely important to a very wide range of disciplines.' Steven Levinson, University of Cambridge 'This will become the standard work on conversation analysis. No one reading it will be able to doubt the basic importance of the research reported therein to sociology and linguistics.' Anthony Giddens, University of Cambridge 'This excellent summary of conversation analysts' theoretical accomplishments lays bare the interactive, and therefore incontrovertibly social, nature of understanding in face-to-face encounters. It is the clearest and most explicit statement yet of the context-bound, sequentially ordered inferential processes that both constrain and make possible human understanding.' John Gumperz, University of California, Berkeley
