Waring, Hansun Zhang – Classroom Discourse, 2018
This contribution outlines the problems and possibilities of three issues with regard to the teaching of L2 interactional competence (IC): (1) specifying IC, (2) standardising IC, and (3) translating conversation analytic (CA) insights into classroom practices. In particular, I argue for a shift of discussion from the conceptually treacherous…

Pekarek Doehler, Simona – Classroom Discourse, 2018
This paper argues for a broadening of the analytic scope of research on L2 interactional competence so as to embrace systematic investigation of the linguistic resources that L2 speakers put to use for the specific purpose of coordinating social interaction.

Hall, Joan Kelly – Classroom Discourse, 2018
In this paper, I offer a reconsideration of "interactional competence" as an object of L2 learning. I argue that the field's uptake of the concept displays a misunderstanding of, or at least a lack of attention to, its related but distinct intellectual roots in linguistic anthropology and conversation analysis. This has resulted in…

Eskildsen, Søren W. – Classroom Discourse, 2018
This commentary draws on the four articles in this issue to discuss interactional competence from a usage-based perspective. The usage-based conception of language knowledge as an inventory of form-meaning pairings used for communicative purposes will be qualified by incorporating the idea that these communicative purposes are social actions. L2…

LeBlanc, Robert Jean – Classroom Discourse, 2018
Based on data drawn from audio recordings of a 9th grade female English teacher in Southern California and her interactions with students in her classroom, I examined how she represents the thinking and voices of her students as her students during confrontation and conflict. Analysis demonstrates how the projected ventriloquation of her students'…

Reddington, Elizabeth – Classroom Discourse, 2018
While there has been long-standing interest in identifying teacher practices for facilitating participation, less attention has been paid to what might be termed the 'participation paradox', or the necessity of "engaging in" and "disengaging from" interactions with individual students to create opportunities for both…

Laursen, Helle Pia; Kolstrup, Kirsten L. – Classroom Discourse, 2018
Previous studies of clarification requests in conversations involving second language users typically view such requests as important to obtain 'comprehensible input' or as a form of repair resulting in a sidetrack from the ongoing conversation. This article argues that clarification requests potentially have a much deeper influence on the course…

McQuade, Robert; Wiggins, Sally; Ventura-Medina, Esther; Anderson, Tony – Classroom Discourse, 2018
As a pedagogical approach that aims to develop students' group-working skills and to challenge their current knowledge, problem-based learning (PBL) provides a unique setting in which to examine disagreements in interaction. Previous research on disagreements in classrooms has typically examined tutor-student interaction or student-student…

Tai, Kevin W. H.; Brandt, Adam – Classroom Discourse, 2018
Previous research has illustrated that learner initiatives have the potential to generate learning opportunities in second language (L2) classrooms. Despite a small body of recent research indicating that teachers' responses to learner initiatives play a significant role in facilitating learning opportunities in teacher-student interactions, more…

Leyland, Christopher – Classroom Discourse, 2018
While a good deal of interaction-based research has examined the delivery of advice, a smaller but very important body of work has shifted focus to consider the ways in which advice is resisted by its recipients in various contexts, including writing tutorials at universities. The current study builds on this research by further investigating the…
