More general, theoretical developments in the study of oral interaction are oriented towards universal aspects of language use. From a theoritical nd applied perspective, however, not only the theory building on these universal and structural aspects is relevant, but also the social determination of the models that have been developed. In this project, the relationship between universal mechanisms in the regulation of language use and social variation in oral interactional language stands central. The following sources of social variation are considered as object of research: etnicity, social class and gender.
