Employing conversation analysis, this article explores correction sequences initiated by correction invitations in ordinary multilingual interactions. The article focuses on a phenomenon I call the post-other-correction repeat (POCR) and has three main findings. First, a POCR recurrently occurs at the third position of the correction sequence. Second, it is an accomplishment of the self-corrections. Third, the repeat is a demonstration of one's real-time analysis of the prior correction by transforming an aspect of the expression used in the first-position action. In addition, the article argues for the endogenous accomplishments upon the production of the POCR. Finally, I discuss the possible instructive properties of correction sequences.
