About this event

"Today I would like to examine the function of counters (Schegloff, 2007) within the organisation of sequences of reciprocal complaints. Once again, the extract comes from a corpus of Therapeutic Community group meetings for clients with drug addiction. We will be looking at a case where two clients are having an argument involving ‘coffee’. "

This is event is part of the Discourse and Rhetoric Group (DARG) events series.
