Abstract: Observing naturally occurring talk-in-interaction in Japanese, this book examines how Japanese speakers segment their talk into relevant interactional units & use particles such as ne & sa to accomplish local pragmatic work. The study provides a conversation analytic, action-oriented account for the ubiquity of such particles in Japanese talk. The study argues that such particles are important resources for Japanese speakers to negotiate & fine-tune particular conversational contingencies within the emerging sequential environment of the talk. Various examples show that prospective alignment & the negotiability of conversational next action are ever-present issues for Japanese conversationalists & are handled at the precise moment of their relevance through interlocutors' deployment of ne & sa. This study thus adds to the literature on Japanese conversational interaction a novel understanding of particle use in its synthesis of functional linguistics & conversation analysis. Bibliog.
