Abstract

This study demonstrates that participants partition the population including themselves and their referents, in order to manage the distributions of entitlements to speak of particular subjects and perform particular actions. They may disagree with or even contest the partitioning implicated in each utterance. Drawing on Harvey Sacks's idea of membership categorization devices, an analytic framework is provided in which what has been discussed under the rubric of epistemics and deontics is rearranged. The data are the video-recordings of monthly meetings held by a group of residents from a town issued a Fukushima-related evacuation order in 2011 that was finally lifted in 2014. They are in Japanese and presented with English translation.
