Socialising the Paralinguistic
Abstract zum Vortrag:

Spoken conversation is full of ‘sound objects’ (Reber, 2012) like laughter, clicks, or interjections, which are ‘in’ speech, but not ‘of’ it. The majority of phoneticians class these kinds of sound as ‘paralinguistic’ – that is, as communicative and patterned, but not a part of language (e.g. Laver, 1994). 
Strikingly, many features of the phonetic/prosodic design of these kinds of sound object are also found in speech. Sound objects often give us ways to explore, for example, rhythm or pitch being used separately from linguistic material (see, e.g. Keevallik & Ogden, 2020, and papers therein). Despite high degrees of phonetic variability and even novelty in the form of unique tokens (or singularities; Enfield 2009: 13), participants unproblematically treat these sound objects as meaningful, even if the precise details of an individual instance are unique. What general practices are available to them to accomplish this?
In this talk I will focus on some of the phonetic and embodied details of some non-lexical vocalisations which occur post-completion (Schegloff, 1996: 90), which are elements that have a retrospective relation to the prior TCU, and which are oriented to in a next turn by a co-participant. The examples will include clicks and laughter. I will show how their phonetic (and other embodied) affordances provide for them to be integrated with the TCU they follow, and also provide resources to shape a response. The entrainment (mirroring, accommodation) of different phonetic elements of the design of these utterances is an important element of a response to them, and a way for a co-participant to display their understanding of them: hence the ‘socialising’ of the title.
