Research Overview

I am interested in conversational interaction in the mundane settings (e.g. friends talk, family talk) and institutional settings (e.g. television talk show, medical interview). I am using both the CA method and pragmatic method to investigate the mechanism of the "disorderly" but interesting interactional exchange. The methodology I am using features qualitative and quantitative corpus-based models of analysis and statistical modelling in R.
