The learn examines the occurrences of those causal and contrastive markers on the subject of their sequential atmosphere and the ensuing interplay. whereas the introductory chapters situate this strategy within the present literature, the most analytical chapters examine the ways that ‘delivery of agreement’, ‘delivery of disagreement’, and ‘pursuit for contract’ are played with using the different sorts of connective expressions.

2) —» Miki: 00: : erusan wa okane aruo f f i c e - l a d i e s Top money have a- aru kar a. ne::. ' The kara clause, marked by the arrow, is produced by Miki as an extension of Emi's talk in the prior turn. 13 These excerpts demonstrate that the clauses marked by connective particles may be produced as a unit, or even as a turn, and can be separated from the corresponding "main" clauses by a pause, an intervening turn, or the transfer of speakership. That is, these clauses, which have been described as "dependent" or "subordinate," can be produced, not as a preplanned unit with the corresponding "main" clause, but as a unit produced "independently" as speakers make each contribution reflecting their moment-by-moment analysis of the interactional context.

Thus, some connectives that appear to occur clauseinternally could be the beginning of a self-repair or a restart; while those that appear to occur after a predicate could be the initial component of the next utterance, which is terminated by an overlap or word search. That is, in a similar manner to the linking direction of connective particles discussed earlier, the linking direction of connectives, especially those occurring in a non-initial position, provide analysts a certain level of equivocality.
