Repeated Repetition in Second Language Classroom Interaction
2010 (English)Conference paper, Poster (Refereed)
Majlesi, Ali RezaRepeated Repetition; What is done by repetition in second language interactionThis is a study of ‘repetition’ in SLA classrooms. The study is a work in progress on interaction between SLA teacher and her students who are learning Swedish as a second language. I have gathered more than 15 hours recordings of classroom activities. I focus specially on the repetition of linguistic forms in interaction and what is it that is getting done by ‘repeated repetition’. In the midst of their activities, I have observed that participants in interaction use whole or partial repetitions of an utterance to accomplish a certain communicative action. Although the repetitions are differently managed, I have found a similar action done by different types of repetitions. Among my collections, I will thoroughly examine one case and demonstrate how hearably and visibly repetitions among other actions do alter or maintain the focus of participants’ attention in the participatory framework, and change or maintain the frame via repeating the form in focus.
