Description - Studies in Language and Social Interaction by Jennifer Mandelbaum
With its beginnings as a festschrift in honor of language and social interaction scholar Robert Hopper, this book is an edited collection of empirical studies and theoretical essays about human communication in everyday life. The primary focus is upon small or subtle forms of communication that are easily overlooked and too often dismissed as unimportant. Authors examine various features of human interaction occurring naturally within a variety of settings whereby interiocutors accomplish aspects of their interpersonal or institutional lives, all of which may relate to larger social issues. The collection is bound together by a recognition that social life is largely a communicative accomplishment, that people constitute the social realities experienced everyday through small and subtle ways of communicating, carefully orchestrated but commonly taken for granted.
