Item description for The Contextualization of Language (Pragmatics & Beyond New Series) by Auer...

This volume suggests a novel treatment of context in the analysis of everyday interaction. On a theoretical level, it advocates a switch of focus from "context" as a pre-established, monolithic category which constringes co-participants' verbal and non-verbal behaviour, to an active notion of "contextualization": in order to make oneself understood, participants have to establish and maintain those shared contextual frames which in turn are relevant to the local interpretation of their verbal and non-verbal acitivities. On an empirical level, the volume contains analyses that show how participants employ "contextualization cues" of prosodic (rhythm, intonation, tempo) or non-verbal (gaze, gesture) nature in order to "achieve context". The volume is also an appraisal of the theory of contextualization developed by John Gumperz. The contributors come from various schools of research, such as conversation analysis, micro-ethnography, phonetics/phonology and meta-pragmatics, and relate their work to this theory.
