|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 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.
