The network consists of researchers from Roskilde University, The University of Aalborg, The University of Aarhus, The University of Copenhagen, and The University of Southern Denmark. Throughout more than 25 years MOVIN has conducted a wide range of studies in a variety of settings with a focus on all kinds of aspects of possible relevance to social interaction.

PROGRAMME (all times are in CEST - Central European Summer Time)

Wednesday, June 23, 2021

09.00-09.30 Opening: Why this now?

09.45-12.00 A grammar of Danish talk-in-interaction With Maria Jørgensen, Aarhus; Nicholas Mikkelsen, Aarhus; Marja-Leena Sorjonen, Helsinki, Jakob Steensig, Aarhus

The GEL project (Grammar in Everyday Life) analyzes three action types in Danish everyday interactions with the purpose of using these action descriptions as a basis for constructing a grammar of Danish talk-in-interaction. In our panel, the current GEL project members (Maria Jørgensen, Nicholas Mikkelsen and Jakob Steensig) will present their results on “proform questions”, requests for immediate action and the use of the final particle ikkå (close to ‘right’, but not quite) and sum up some consequences of these results for a grammatical description. Marja-Leena Sorjonen will then comment on the presented papers and discuss the suggested implications. After this, we open up to a discussion based on discussion points we have set up.
