This volume examines the organization of second language and multilingual speakers' talk and pragmatic knowledge across a range of naturalistic and experimental activities. Based on data collected on Danish, English, Hawai'i Creole, Indonesian, and Japanese as target languages, the contributions explore the nexus of pragmatic knowledge, interaction, and L2 learning outside and inside of educational settings. Part I, "Sequences and Resources in Second Language and Multilingual Talk", contains the following chapters: (1) Learning Language in Real Time: A Case Study of the Japanese Demonstrative Pronoun Are in Word-Search Sequences (Junko Mori); (2) Switching Languages, Juggling Identities: A Sequence of Multilingual, Multiparty Talk (Tim Greer); (3) A Pragmatic Study of the Hawai'i Creole Discourse Marker Daswai in Second-Generation Okinawan American Speech (Toshiaki Furukawa); (4) The Socialization of Leave-Taking in Indonesian (Margaret A. DuFon); (5) Dinkas Down Under: Request Performance in Simulated Workplace Interaction (Lynda Yates); (6) Recognition of Conventional Expressions in L2 Pragmatics (Kathleen Bardovi-Harlig); (7) The Use of Conventional Expressions and Utterance Length in L2 Pragmatics (Kathleen Bardovi-Harlig, Maria-Thereza Bastos, Beatrix Burghardt, Eric Chappetto, Edelmira Nickels, and Marda Rose); and (8) Effects of Cultural Background in a Test of ESL Pragmalinguistics: A DIF Approach (Carsten Roever). Part II, "Second Language Interaction in Pedagogical Settings", contains the following chapters: (1) Achieving Distinction Through Mock ESL: A Critical Pragmatics Analysis of Classroom Talk in a High School (Steven Talmy); (2) Teacher Deployment of Applause in Interactional Assessments of L2 Learners (Yuri Hosoda and David Aline); (3) Other-Correction of Language Form Following a Repair Sequence (Eric Hauser); (4) Agreements and Disagreements: The Small Group Discussion in a Foreign Language Classroom (Donna Fujimoto); and (5) I Can Be With! A Novice Kindergartner's Successes and Challenges in Play Participation and the Development of Communicative Skills (Martha Sif Karrebaek).
