Abstract

Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQs) is a parliamentary session in the British House of Commons where the Prime Minister (PM) takes questions from the Leader of the Opposition (LO) and Members of Parliament (MPs). Taking an interactional linguistic perspective, this chapter examines how LOs and PMs engage in adversarial ‘enticing sequences’ (e.g. Reynolds 2013, 2015), negotiating power and authority on the micro-level of interaction. Based on authentic video recordings, the study describes aspects of embodied action design and turn construction in light of the complex, mediated participation framework at PMQs. A focus is on the ‘index-up gesture’ (Streeck 2008) which is deployed in a specific action slot to claim superior epistemic and evidential access as a resource for claims of power, dominance, and authority by LOs.
