This talk will be a first outing for some work I've done in the last year looking at swallowing in conversation. Swallowing is an apparently physical need; but like sniffs (Hoey 2020) or sighs (Hoey 2014), it is distributed in talk in orderly ways and, like clicks (Ogden 2020) it gets recruited to convey particular forms of 'inability to speak' or 'not saying something'.
I'll give an overview of the articulations involved in swallowing, and show some of the audible and visible signs of swallowing. I'll then show some examples of swallowing, in three main groups: in places where further talk has been projected; where further talk is not projected; and (somewhat overlapping), places where there is some kind of affective display, such as 'trouble'.
