Example text

The business of an HCI practitioner is to choose the manner in which that neutral and objective software state may appear to a user, with the clear understanding that, whatever manner is eventually chosen, this will not alter what is 'really' going on. The interface stands as a defining and sustaining boundary for the business of HCI, both conceptually and literally. One effect of this notion of interface is the marginalisation of HCI work within the central disciplines of software engineering.

According to the adjacency pair concept, this generates the expectation that an answer should follow. Clearly, the caller C O has some difficulty with the question insofar as there is a one second pause (although at this stage the basis of the difficulty is not apparent). The agent's subsequent turn exhibits her awareness of the norm that an answer is an appropriate second to a question: she repeats the question. However, this is not merely an echo of the initial formulation, for in the second version certain words and syllables are given greater stress.

Top so I -(give her a li(h)ft)-(and) you started ya- eking No_(hh)o I give her a lift back The response to Annette's tease that her mother and the visitor started gossiping as soon as they came across each other is rebutted by the visitor's remark that she merely gave Annette's mother a lift in her car. The visitor is chuckling as she says this ("No(hh)o") and thereby exhibits her recognition of the playful element of Annette's remark. In the first extract, the teased party starts to produce a serious response, laughs, and then goes on to provide a po-faced response.
