Abstract [en]

This Conversation Analysis study investigated how a speech and language therapist (SLT) created opportunities for communication aid use in multiparty conversation. An SLT interacted with a child with multiple disabilities and her grandparents in a home setting, using a bliss board. The analyses demonstrated a practice where the SLT employed sequential and multimodal methods to open up interactional spaces for board use. The board was used within this space either by the child, or by the SLT. The space was then closed by the SLT's attentive checking for confirmation or rejection of the meaning of the board indication. The meaning-making processes were actively initiated, supported, and closed by the therapist, using a variety of linguistic and bodily methods such as questions, non-finished turns, indication modeling, and adjusting the board's position. The child confirmed or rejected the therapist's moves using board indications, vocalizations, gaze, head movements, and smiles. The analysed practice creates opportunities for teaching and possibly also for learning how to use a communication aid.

Abstract [en]

This book argues for the importance of the participants' perspective within both theory and practice on the function of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) aids in everyday talk-in-interaction. Interactional approaches such as Conversation Analysis (CA) and Topical episode analysis are used to analyze and demonstrate the way participants make sense and display their understanding of AAC-mediated action. The book documents various practices and methods of the everyday use of AAC which can be applied clinically when establishing evidence-based assessment and intervention procedures. The book aims to bridge the gap between research and clinical practice, analyzes and explains the use of AAC aids, uses video recordings and transcriptions of naturally occurring, everyday talk-in-interacton, and demonstrates how the communicative context of the user's home is a powerful environment for learning and developing AAC use.

Abstract [en]

This paper reports on a conversation-analysis case study of interaction between a child with cerebral palsy and an adult using a computer-based voice output communication aid (VOCA) device with a touch-sensitive screen-input system. Data was collected from video recordings of everyday activities at school. The public nature of the VOCA-mediated turn construction process (hand movements towards the screen, on-screen folder navigation, synthetic speech) displays the projection of the turn under way and its possible continuations. The adult interlocutor orients to such projections when contributing to the topic of the ongoing turn and when initiating repair on its topical development. Contributing may activate the AAC user's further involvement in the ongoing turn, while repair may restrict the AAC user's influence on the topical progression. The findings are relevant for clinical assessment and intervention.

Abstract [en]

This special issue collects six articles (including this introduction) about a family of grammatical constructions in everyday talk-in-interaction, syntactic pivot constructions, as they appear within five different languages: Estonian, Finnish, French, German (Siebenburger Sachsisch variety) and Swedish or six, as pivot utterances from English talk are often used as comparative data. In this introduction, we will try to sketch the empirical background to the collected studies as it has emerged during the last decade. We will also discuss some central issues regarding the analysis of pivots as participants' methods to engage in communicative projects in talk, as well as the theoretical relevance of pivots for a grammar of conversational language. First we will define the phenomenon of syntactic pivots and present some basic conceptual tools for the discussions. After the introduction follows an overview of the basic resources and methods of pivot construction (apart from formal syntax), such as prosody, lexis, incrementation, and projection, based on naturally occurring pivot utterances drawn from different languages. The introduction ends with a discussion of the dependence of pivots on other grammatical construction methods within specific languages, as well as the relation between the use of pivots and activity types.

Abstract [en]

This paper reports results from a conversation analytic (CA) study on how participants use pivot constructions as methods to shift perspective during on-going turn construction while engaging in local communicative tasks and projects. Data are drawn from a corpus of everyday and institutional Swedish talk-in-interaction. Three main variants of perspective shifts are presented: shifts into explanatory talk; shifts in epistemic stance; and shifts during turns within an extended telling sequence. Perspective shifts with pivot construction may be used as an incremental method of redesigning the incipient turn for next actions (by self or other), as a method for avoiding involvement into the turn construction by other participants, or as a turn-keeping method when facing overlapping talk. The results indicate that grammar and grammatical structure are organized dialogically on a local level and emerge from speakers’ turn construction methods and turn-taking practices when participating in talk-in-interaction.

Abstract [sv]

I denna artikel presenteras resultat från en studie av hur pronominella returfrågor an­vänds av deltagare för att lösa olika typer av kommunikativa uppgifter i några vardagliga svenska samtal. De pronominella returfrågorna är excerperade ur videoinspelade, naturligt förekommande och vardagliga flerpartssamtal i hemmiljö, med kvinnliga del­tagare i pensionsåldern. Deltagarna (3 till 4 stycken) är i huvudsak sysselsatta med samtal och fika i de sekvenser som analyserats. Totalt 37 belägg av typiska pro­nominella returfrågor (basvarianter 1–2) har excerperats ur tre samtal om samman­­lagt 4 tim och 9 min.

Analysen visar att deltagare använder prono­minella returfrågor för att å ena sidan respondera på vissa typer av lokala kon­texter eller handlingar, och å andra sidan att frågorna är sekventiellt implikativa på olika sätt beroende på vilken lokal aktivitet deltagarna är involverade i, samt hur frågornas syntaktiska, prosodiska och lexikala design bidrar till dessa båda dialogiska aspekter av frågeyttrandena.

Returfrågor används för att respondera på informationsrapporter i föregående tur eller föregående minimala tur­sekvens. De kan inleda reparation i en sekvens där returfrågan följs av en förklaring eller redovisning som sätter fokus på något problematiskt i turen/turerna som föregår returfrågan. Returfrågor kan bekräfta ett föreslaget samtalsämne, samt respondera på en nyetablerad opposition mellan talare (som sedan reds ut) så att både en full konflikt och ett fullt uppgivande av den egna ståndpunkten/åsikten undviks. Returfrågor används i materialet även för att respondera på lokala kontexter där det blivit uppenbart att returtalaren och en eller flera andra deltagare inte längre delar en ömsesidig social värld här-och-nu.

Analysen har påvisat skillnader mellan de olika lokala interaktionella kontexterna beträffande hur returfrågeyttrandena ut­formas (främst prosodiskt) och behandlas i efterföljande samtal. Det finns dock även många likheter mellan returfrågeyttrandena i materialet i stort, och mellan de returfrågor som behandlats i uppsatsen. Förutom de åter­kommande pragmatiska villkor som beskrivits, t.ex. beträffande informations­organisation, har likheterna med stor sannolikhet även att göra med yttrandenas formella grammatiska och prosodiska konfigurationer, samt de funktionella potentialer att utföra kommunikativa uppgifter i samtal som kan knytas till dessa.
