The Interdependence of Bodily Demonstrations and Clausal Syntax

Abstract [en]

Units in interaction are emergent real-time phenomena that can be accomplished by the coordinated deployment of language and the body. Focusing mostly on data from dance classes, this study looks at how incomplete syntax projects a continuation realized by the body and systematically accounts for clausal syntax that can incorporate an embodied demonstration. It is argued that the classic list of types of turn constructional units by Sacks et al. (1974) needs to be expanded with a syntactic-bodily one and that the syntax of embodied demonstrations has to be included in the grammatical description of language.
