2014 (English)In: Grammar and dialogism: sequential, syntactic, and prosodic patterns between emergence and sedimentation / [ed] Susanne Günthner, Wolfgang Imo and Jörg Bücker, Berlin: Walter de Gruyter, 2014, p. 79-108Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The present chapter deals with reactive constructions in Swedish and German, especially with two constructions which will be called x-och/und-x (i.e. x-and-x) and 'double initial auxiliaries' (= DIA) constructions. As reactive constructions we define constructions involving the speaker's repetition of an expression x used in a prior utterance by another or by the speaker him/herself. This first segment is followed by a negotiation of the situated meaning of x. The function is to react to or against the previous speaker's way of expressing him/herself, his/her use of the expression x.

Our observations confirm a general view of online languaging ( = 'language use'), that utterances are incrementally built. Moreover, our data show that reactive constructions are evidence for a dynamic and dialogical conception of language and languaging, including grammatical constructions.

Abstract [sv]

Per Linell har, tillsammans med medarbetare och kolleger, arbetat under lång tid med samtal, särskilt sådana som hör hemma i institutioner och professioner och deras kontakter med klienter. I de två volymerna om Samtalskulturer ligger fokus främst på sådana institutionella samtal, men böck~rna ger även ett samhälleligt förankrat perspektiv på samtal och kommunikation i allmänhet. Samtalskulturer vänder sig både till samhällsvetare med intresse för interaktionen mellan människor och tillspråkvetare med specialisering på språkets och språkandets roll i samhällslivet.

Abstract [sv]

Per Linell disputerade i allmän språkvetenskap (Uppsala, 1974) och har varit professor vid Linköpings universitet, först vid tema Kommunikation 1981-2005 och därefter i språk och kultur 2006-2011. Han har fått internationellt erkännande för sina bidrag till "dialogiska" teorier om människors meningsskapande i kommunikation och tänkande. Sådana teorier betonar hur man som sarntalare, författare, tänkare och praktiker är beroende av andra personer, av kontexter och interaktioner. På detta område har Linell publicerat böcker som Approaching Dialogue (Amsterdam, 1998) och Rethinking Language, Mind and World Dialogically (Charlotte, NC, 2009). I boken The Written Language Bias in Linguistics (London, 2005) analyserar han utförligt skriftspråksorienteringen i språkvetenskapen. Han har arbetat med samtal av många olika slag och analyserat deras funktioner i samhället. Det gäller särskilt samtal i institutioner och professioner (Samtalskulturer, Linköping, 2011). I boken Språkande har han samlat olika uppsatser om grammatiken i verkliga yttranden i samtal.

Abstract [en]

The fourteen contributions in this collection come from different approaches in pragmatics, interactional linguistics, conversation analysis, discourse analysis and dialogue analysis; the name given to what is studied ranges from spoken language and conversation to interaction, dialogue, discourse and communication. What the articles have in common is a similar starting point: they are informed by a form of linguistic understanding which has emerged within what could be called the interactional turn. The materials investigated come from several different languages, representing a variety of interactions: private and public, written and spoken, historical and present-day. While studies of such diverse materials naturally differ in their starting points, goals and aims, engaging them in a dialogue can help reveal where old beliefs may be challenged and new understandings may emerge. The interactional approaches to discourse presented in this volume show that there are several discourses on interaction: interconnected, parallel, but also varying and even divergent

Abstract [en]

Talk in safety-critical activities displays features that distinguish it from both ordinaryconversations as well as from other institutional talk, but it also shares some features with these.Formality and informality are both interactionally accomplished phenomena, but they are shapedthrough different sources. Safety rules and pre-printed forms constitute two sources offormalization, dictating how to carry out communicative exchanges in certain types of situations,irrespective of the more specific circumstances in individual cases. Sources of informalization arethe participants’ need to adapt to situation-specific communicative needs, but also, ironicallyenough, routinization itself.In contemporary literature, safety-critical talk tends to be treated either in terms of strictadherence to a formal code, where all informalities are seen as potential sources of accidents, orinformalization is treated as natural and inevitable, focusing on routine conditions where they areapparently harmless. In this paper, based upon detailed analysis of telephone calls between traindrivers and dispatchers on the Swedish railway network, we propose a middle ground. We suggest acontingent theory of formalization, identifying four main types of informalizations, as well asdiscussing when and why they may be harmless and when they may be detrimental.

Abstract [en]

This article is a study of how the participation status of asylum-seeking children is interactively constructed in interpreter-mediated asylum hearings. We have undertaken a discourse analysis of 50 non-repair side-sequences from 26 hearings with Russian-speaking, asylum-seeking children in Sweden. A side-sequence is here defined as a monolingual sequence conducted in only one of the languages involved in the interviews. It involves the interpreter and only one of the primary interlocutors. In this article, four extracts are chosen for a micro-analysis in order to elucidate how interpreters can challenge asylum-seeking children’s participant statuses. We show that the right of the child to make his or her voice heard can be challenged, especially when the interpreters exclude, distort, discredit and guide the voices of the children, which is often done with the tacit approval of caseworkers.

Abstract [en]

Trust, distrust and conflict between social groups have existed throughout the history of humankind, although their forms have changed. Using three main concepts: culture, representation and dialogue, this book explores and re-thinks some of these changes in relation to concrete historical and contemporary events. Part I offers a symbolic and historical analysis of trust and distrust while Parts II and III examine trust, distrust and conflict in specific events including the Cyprus conflict, Estonian collective memories, coping with HIV/AIDS in China, Swedish asylum seekers, the Cuban missile crisis and Stalinist confessions. With an impressive array of international contributors the chapters draw on a number of key concepts such as self and other, ingroup and outgroup, contact between groups, categorization, brinkmanship, knowledge, beliefs and myth.  Trust and Conflict offers a fresh perspective on the problems that arise from treating trust, distrust and conflict as simplified indicators. Instead, it proposes that human and social sciences can view these phenomena within the complex matrix of interacting perspectives and meta-perspectives that characterise the social world. As such it will be of interest to undergraduates, postgraduates and lecturers of human and social sciences especially social psychology, sociology, political science and communication studies.

Abstract [en]

This collection of original articles focuses on the function, role, and structure of linguistic and extralinguistic “context(s)” in relation to the notion of “constructions” and in construction grammar. It thus takes up and brings together two equally complex concepts of linguistics, which both encompass structural as well as pragmatic and discourse-oriented aspects. Although both notions – contexts as well as constructions – have been under intense discussion in linguistics during the last decades with a wide span of research interests, integrative studies of these aspects have been largely missing.

The eight papers presented in this volume explore the possibilities and risks of integrating context(s) into particular constructions and construction grammar in general. Topics range from particular language and construction-specific problems such as the "polysemy" of modal verbs in relation to context-sensitive constructions, to general technical analyses and proposals, including proposals for formalizing contextual features in constructional representations.

The volume will be of interest to scholars and advanced undergraduates interested in linguistic theory in general and in constructional, pragmatic and discourse-analytic approaches in particular.

Abstract [en]

A volume in Advances in Cultural PsychologySeries Editor: Jaan Valsiner, Clark University"This is a remarkable and highly original work on dialogism, dialogical theories and dialogue. With his erudite and broadly based scholarship PerLinell makes a path-breaking contribution to the study of the human mind, presenting a novel alternative to traditional monologism and exploring thedynamics of sense-making in different forms of interaction and communicative projects. Although Per Linell discusses complex dialogical concepts, the text is written with exceptional clarity, taking the reader through critique as well as appreciation of great intellectual traditions of our time."(Professor Ivana Markov, University of Stirling, U.K.)"Per Linells Rethinking Language, Mind And World Dialogically represents a landmark in the development ofa transdisciplinary dialogically basedparadigm for the human sciences. The author?'s lucid analysis and constructive rethinking ranges all the way from integrating explanations ofsignificant empirical contributions across the entire range of human sciences dealing with language, thought and communication to foundational, epistemological and ontological issues."(Professor Ragnar Rommetveit, University of Oslo, Norway)Per Linell took his degree in linguistics and is currently professor of language and culture, with a specialisation on communication and spokeninteraction, at the University of Link ping, Sweden. He has been instrumental in building up an internationally renowned interdisciplinary graduateschool in communication studies in Link ping. He has worked for many years on developing a dialogical alternative to mainstream theories inlinguistics, psychology and social sciences. His production comprises more than 100 articles on dialogue, talk-in-interaction and institutionaldiscourse. His more recent books include Approaching Dialogue (1998), The Written Language Bias in Linguistics (2005) and Dialogue in FocusGroups (2007, with I. Markov, M. Grossen and A. Salazar Orvig).
