About this product
- DescriptionEach time we take a turn in conversation we indicate what we kw and what we think others kw. However, kwledge is neither static r absolute. It is shaped by those we interact with and governed by social rms - we monitor one ather for whether we are fulfilling our rights and responsibilities with respect to kwledge, and for who has relatively more rights to assert kwledge over some state of affairs. This book brings together an international team of leading linguists, sociologists and anthropologists working across a range of European and Asian languages to document some of the ways in which speakers manage the moral domain of kwledge in conversation. The volume demonstrates that if we are to understand how speakers manage issues of agreement, affiliation and alignment - something clearly at the heart of human sociality - we must understand the social rms surrounding epistemic access, primacy and responsibilities.
