Abstract

This contribution focuses on navigational instructions occurring in driving lessons carried out in Italian. It proposes a situated analysis of navigational instructions in their spatio‐temporal and interactional environment with the methods developed in conversation analysis and multimodal interaction analysis. The analytic part of the article first examines the sequential placements of navigational instructions and then zooms in on their turn‐constructional features. The exploration of how interactants coordinate talk with gesture provides a further analytic layer. The article shows that differences in turn format and multimodal delivery of navigational instructions bear on the driving instructor's orientation towards the trainee driver's (putative, assigned) level of competence. Hence, this article contributes to a better understanding of how navigational instructions, as first actions, relate to the overall activity.
