Multimodal counter-argumentation in the workplace : the contribution of gesture and gaze to the expression of disagreement
Title of the conference
Colloque Gesture and speech in interaction (GESPIN 4), Nantes, 2-4 septembre 2015
This paper examines argumentative talk-in-interaction in the workplace. It focuses on counter-argumentative references, which consist of the various resources that the opponent uses to refer to the origin/source of his/her opposition, namely the confronted position and the person who expressed it. Particular attention is paid to the relationship - in terms of sequential positioning and referential extension - between reported speech, polyphony, pointing gestures and shifts in gaze direction. Data are taken from workplace management meetings that have been recorded in New Zealand by the Language in the Workplace Project.
