Abstract [en]

Pointing for mutual orientation to learnables in Swedish as a second language classroom

This study aims at analyzing grammar lessons in Swedish as a second language classroom where the participants point at something using their fingersor pens on the surface of a paper to produce or/and manage an object of inquiry. By doing so, they make that ‘object’ for the practical purpose of the occasion observable, accountable and, in a learning activity, learnable (Majlesi and Broth, sub-mitted). The collected data comprises video recordings of one to one student-teacher interaction in a Swedish language course for immigrants (SFI). This study will show how the embodied gesture of pointing as a main part of employed resources is central to the mutual orientation and mutual under-standing of co-participants in a grammar task in regard to the recognition of a learnable and the pro-vision of a possible explanation for it. It is used to make an object of inquiry foregrounded, recogni-zed and/or understood; that is, for all practical purposes in a learning activity, an object becomes a learnable by being localized, visualized, linked to and/or accounted for through verbal and non-verbal acts among which pointing is at the forefront. In this way, pointing gestures facilitate inter-subjectivity, the understanding of learnables, and the whole learning activity.
