Abstract:Taking into account the characteristics of directionality and projection inherent to language unfolding incrementally in real time interaction, this study reveals that right-expansions emerge as a systematic syntactically structured resource in real-time interaction. Though they may appear as 'deviant' grammatical structures when judged solely on the basis of written language, right-expansions are shown to emerge as a positionally sensitive response to local interactional demands in spoken discourse.
