Title: Acting Out: Participant Examples in the Classroom
Written By: Stanton Wortham
Series Title: Pragmatics and Beyond New Series, 30
Description:

This volume explores a relational pattern that occurs during one type of speech event enacted classroom "participant examples". The study reports that in some cases speakers not only discuss, but also act out the roles assigned to them in participant examples. That is, speakers do with each other, what they are talking about as the content of the example. Participants act as if events described as the example provide a script for their interaction.
