Arenas of language use by Herbert H Clark( Book )

When we think of the ways we use language, we think of face-to-face conversations, telephone conversations, reading and writing, and even talking to oneself. These are arenas of language use--theaters of action in which people do things with language. But what exactly are they doing with language? What are their goals and intentions? By what processes do they achieve these goals? In these twelve essays, Herbert H. Clark and his colleagues discuss the collective nature of language--the ways in which people coordinate with each other to determine the meaning of what they say. According to Clark, in order for one person to understand another, there must be a "common ground" of knowledge between them. He shows how people infer this "common ground" from their past conversations, their immediate surroundings, and their shared cultural background. Clark also discusses the means by which speakers design their utterances for particular audiences and coordinate their use of language with other participants in a language arena. He argues that language use in conversation is a collaborative process, where speaker and listener work together to establish that the listener understands the speaker's meaning. Since people often use words to mean something quite different from the dictionary definitions of those words, Clark offers a realistic perspective on how speakers and listeners coordinate on the meanings of words. --From publisher's description

Analysis of routine communication in the air traffic control system final report by Herbert H Clark( Book )
3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 76 libraries worldwide
This project has three related goals: 1) To describe the organization of routine controller-pilot communication including the identification of the basic units of communication and how they are organized into discourse, how controllers and pilots use language to achieve their goals, and what topics they discuss; 2) To identify the types and frequency of problems that interrupt routine information transfer and prompt controllers and pilots to focus on communication itself. The costs of these programs were analyzed in term of communication efficiency and the techniques used to resolve these problems; 3) To identify factors associated with communication problems such as deviation from conventional ATC procedures

The Prediction of Recall Patterns in Simple Active Sentences by Herbert H Clark( Book )
1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
An experiment was conducted to determine if the structure of a stimulus sentence--as evidenced in the recall pattern of the sentence--could be predicted from information contained in the sentence associations it elicited. Sentence associations to 20 simple sentences were collected from a group of subjects. The free recall of the same 20 sentences then was required of a second group of subjects. The variability within the sets of associations given by the first group was then correlated with the probability of correct recall of the sentences by the second group. The recall pattern of sentences grammatically equivalent to "The small boy hit the ball" was highly predictable from the sentence associations. The mean recall probabilities of the modifier, actor, verb, and object correlated highly with the mean variation of respective associated sentence modifiers, actors, verbs, and objects. In the generalized sentence the actor was the best recalled element and had the least variability in the set of sentence associations. The verb was the least recalled and exhibited the most variability. Element recall intercorrelations showed the modifier and actor were closely correlated as were the verb and object. (Kb)
