This "Handbook "stands as the premier scholarly resource for
Language and Social Interaction (LSI) subject matter and research,
giving visibility and definition to this area of study and
establishing a benchmark for the current state of scholarship. The
"Handbook" identifies the five main subdisciplinary areas that make
up LSI--language pragmatics, conversation analysis, language and
social psychology, discourse analysis, and the ethnography of
communication. One section of the volume is devoted to each area,
providing a forum for a variety of authoritative voices to provide
their respective views on the central concerns, research programs,
and main findings of each area, and to articulate the present or
emergent issues and directions. A sixth section addresses LSI in
the context of broadcast media and the Internet. This volume's
distinguished authors and original content contribute significantly
to the advancement of LSI scholarship, circumscribing and
clarifying the interrelationships among the questions, findings,
and methods across LSI's subdisciplinary areas. Readers will come
away richer in their understanding of the variety and depth of ways
the intricacies of language and social interaction are revealed. As
an essential scholarly resource, this "Handbook" is required
reading for scholars, researchers, and graduate students in
language and social interaction, and it is destined to have a broad
influence on future LSI study and research.
