Bodies in interaction: analytical challenges

This talk will discuss the idea of mulitmodality and present the way in which it invites to rethink some classical topics in linguistics, like deixis, but also more radically how it enables to revisit the analysis of phenomena apparently escaping to it, such as syntax or textuality, as well as how it raises new challenges, for example in relation to the analysis of embodied silent actions. Issues such as the temporality of multiple multimodal resources, the role of the local ecology, the specificities of the settings, will also be discussed, on the basis of video-recorded data in a diversity of contexts.
