My research attempts to uncover the underlying structures of conversation using recordings of spontaneous naturally occurring social interaction. Studying how and when people use particular interaction practices, and to what effect, helps us understand where the boundaries are in terms of culture and language. My primary methodology is conversation analysis, but I also combine CA with statistical methods for comparative work whether the interest is race/ethnicity, SES, human development or differences in language and culture.
