Conversation analysis (CA), initially developed by Harvey Sacks with Emanuel Schegloff, David Sudnow, and others, seeks to provide a descriptive study of human conduct via empirical data of naturally occurring interaction. CA attempts to provide an approach to investigating the sequential nature of social action from the perspective of the participants’ display of methods and procedures utilized in the organization of their interaction. From its inception in the early 1960s, CA has developed a set of concerns centered on the observable features of interaction as they arise in a range of circumstances and situations and for undertaking various actions via talk. While originally presented as a means of extending sociological analysis, CA, as an approach to activity, has grown to be incorporated into numerous fields and explorations regarding human communication.
