Drew, Paul
Research on Language and Social Interaction, v31 n3-4 p295-325 1998
Explores issues concerning the accountability of conduct and the moral work that may be managed through accounts of actions, in the context of naturally occurring telephone conversations. Distinguishes between the implicit and explicit moral work of accounts, considering cases in which speakers appear implicitly to be doing defensive moral work in accounts of or for their conduct.
