This book explores the interpretation of grammar and turn-taking in Japanese talk-in-interaction from the perspective of conversation analysis. It pays special attention to the projectability patterns of turns in Japanese in comparison to English. Through qualitative and quantitative methods, it is shown that the postpositional grammatical structure and the predicate-final orientation in Japanese regularly result in a relatively delayed projectability of the possible point at which a current turn may become recognisably complete in comparison to English. Prior to such points, projectability is often limited to the progressive anticipation of small increments of talk. However, participants are able to achieve smooth speaker transitions with minimal gap or overlap through the use of specific grammatical and prosodic devices for marking possible points at which a transition may become relevant.8, 200, 207 kakari-joshi 187 kantfijoshi 187 planned shape or format 106, 108 post-predicate additions 19, 82, 101 n. ... 140 see also iikiri (truncated) form quantification 13, 14a€”15, 62ff question projection 152a€”3, 1624 quotation format 150, 159, 1624 real-time 12 ... 220 a€œrelational worka€ 220 relevance of turn-transfer 134 Ren, J. 30 repair 45, 179 a€œembeddeda€ repair 173 repair intiators 47a€”8, 177, 187 n.
