Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Abstract: The present study intends to investigate some important and fundamental structures in a typical conversation from an analytical perspective. Thanks to the significance behind the emergence of conversation analysis (CA) and its typical definition, the researcher attempts to empirically and practically consult live data out of an 11-minute talk-in-interaction so as to both identify basic structures in the encounter and accordingly back specific-ordered and systematic structures and notions maintained by CA hypothetically. In doing so, to conduct the analysis of some significant and central structures of the conversation, the researcher zeroes in on four structures and concepts, i.e. turn-taking, overlap, repair and discourse markers.
