How far is extra-textual material necessary to ethnomethodology, conversation analysis and contemporary language-oriented social constructivism? That question emerged as the theme of the first international conference of the Discourse Analysis Research Group on `Understanding Language Use in Everyday Life', held at the University of Calgary in August of 1989. It provoked varied and sometimes incompatible responses from those present, including some of the most illustrious scholars currently engaged in the study of naturally occurring talk. This collection of responses highlights disagreements and stimulates debate.
