Example text

These constraints, have left the discourse analyst struggling to find ways to preserve the ‘naturalness’ of interactions in which all involved are aware they are being taped, a most ‘unnatural’ state of affairs. The great irony of recording technology for discourse analysts is that it simultaneously introduced a standard of ‘naturalness’ for our data and created social and institutional conditions that made that standard much more difficult to obtain. Video Killed the Discourse Analyst? Audio recording was not the only technology social scientists used in the midtwentieth century to study communication.

Invocations of future interaction – such as see you Thursday or I’ll be in touch then – are common at the end of calls. In institutional interactions there are often component phases or activities which characteristically emerge in a particular order. Acute doctor– patient interactions, for example, have a highly structured overall organization: Opening, Presenting Complaint, Examination, Diagnosis, Treatment and Closing (Heritage and Maynard 2006) – and doctors’ and patients’ conduct can be analysed for how they orient to and negotiate the boundaries of each phase of the interaction.

The most obvious effect of audio-recording technology on the processes of selecting and summarizing was that, since audiotape only captured the auditory channel of the interaction, that was the only one available to the analyst for selection. Even though for many researchers the practice of tape recording was accompanied by the making of detailed observational notes regarding non-verbal behaviour, these notes could hardly compete with the richness, the accuracy, and the ‘authority’ of the recorded voice.
