Contents:
Linguistic Dimensions of Crisis Talk; Editorial page; Title page; LCC data; Dedication; Table of contents; Acknowledgements; Towards an analysis of crisis talk; Discourse-related approaches; Linguistic and corpus methodology; Analysis of general dialogue properties; Analysis of particular dialogue properties; Select glossary of relevant aviation terms; Abbreviations; A key to the atomic representation of speech act types; Examples: Minimal sequences and their modifications; Two sample transcripts; Background information to samples; References; Subject index.
Summary: This book offers an HPSG-based discourse grammar for a controlled language (Air Traffic Control) that allows the identification of well-formed discourse patterns. A formalisation of discourse theoretical structures that occur especially in crisis situations that involve potential aviation disasters is introduced. Of particular importance in this context are discourse sequences that help secure uptake among the crew and between crew and tower in order to coordinate actions that might result in avoiding a potential disaster. In order to describe the relevant phenomena, an extended HPSG formalism.
