Example text

The analysis of the body in communication drew upon the Wittgensteinian discussion on action-reaction (Philosophical Investigations 1953) as underlying language games. It also drew upon the ATR research on feedback in communication, research in gesture and cognition (Kita 1993), conversation moves (Carletta, Isard, Doherty-Sneddon, and Anderson 1997). The concept 'move' in conversation analysis denote something that moves the information and conversation forwards. This gave rise to the expression 'Body Moves'.

And we come back to this when reflecting on the speaker-response model. 19 The building of the categories of Body Moves (BM) draws upon dialogue acts and features of dialogue acts, which bear parallel to the phenomena observed. Some features of dialogue acts are specific to speech and are not embodied in Body Moves, such as intonation, and asking questions or making commands. Some Body Moves have required the development of new terms in order to either demarkate between the bodily actions and their Communication Act (CA) counterpart, such as 'check', which as a body move becomes b-check, or because there appears no clear counterpart in Communication Act theory, for instance dem-ref, attempt-contact and focus.

For example, colours depicted old woodland and new woodland. To Gordon's surprise, John judged the colours that he had used to be 'wrong' and that the maps needed to be correctly recoloured. Company BETA had barely two weeks left to submit their bid and recolouring all these maps was no small task. John brought in other experienced landscape architects at his branch to help, and asked Gordon to travel up from Wales and recolour the maps with them. It was felt that Gordon lacked experience and the only way he was going to get it was by experiencing the doing of colouring in a shared practice.
