Abstract

This report describes the use of well as a preface to repair solutions in self- initiated repair segments. It extends our previous work on repair prefacing, which showed that repair prefaces cast a relationship between a projected repair solution and its trouble source, with each preface type casting this relationship in a distinctive way. Based on analysis of our collection of 135 recorded instances of the phenomenon, we find that well-prefacing is a practice speakers use to overtly cast a repair solution as a noteworthy revision of the inadequate (but not wholly wrong) formulation it is moving away from. We then compare well-prefacing to no-prefacing and introduce the practice of double prefacing by describing well+no-prefacing. We con- clude by describing three kinds of repair common among the well-prefaced repairs in our collection. Data are in British and American English.
