The Clanger Phenomenon: The Non-Deviant Nature of Deviant Utterances.
Arndt, Horst; Janney, Richard
International Review of Applied Linguistics in Language Teaching, v18 n1 p41-57 Feb 1980
Instances of conversational disruption caused by a clanger, or interactionally aggressive utterance, which disrupts the expected relationship of verbal moves in conversation are examined at the phonological, lexical and syntactic levels. Speakers use clangers to redefine the relationship between the participants in the interpersonal domains of hostility-affection and dominance-submission. (PMJ)
