Title: Corrective recasts' and other-correction of language form in interaction among native and non-native speakers of English: the application of conversation analysis to second language acquisition

Abstract: This study investigates 'corrective recasts' and other-correction of language form during interaction among native and non-native speakers meeting at a conversation club at an English language school. Several problems were found with the use of 'corrective recast' as an analytic category. However, at times, participants were found to orient to certain turns as performing other-correction of language form. Analysis of sequential and turn-internal organization illustrated how other-correction of language form can be understood to be a collaborative accomplishment of the participants. Analysis of what occurred following other-correction of language form indicated that participants' orientation to language form is somewhat limited. In addition, accounting for a language error and/or a correction could become interactional business for the participants. Finally, this study explored the potential, problems, and limitations associated with the application of straight conversation analysis in the study of second language acquisition. A basic limitation of such application is that there is no learning theory within conversation analysis, making it impossible to investigate language learning.
