Lawrence, Samuel G.
Research on Language and Social Interaction, v29 n3 p181-218 1996
Discusses the effect of the interactive accomplishment of conversational normalization.

The methodological impetus for this study involves a variant of conversation analysis known as "single case analysis." (48 references) (CK)
