Example text

In the Q–A–Oh sequence, the “oh” retroactively confirms that the previous question was a “real” question offered by a relatively uninformed questioner. In the Q–A–E sequence, the evaluation confirms the epistemic supremacy of the questioner, and that the question was designed to test the answerer. Thus we can see that the Q–A–E sequence constitutes a pedagogic context. If we remove the desks and chairs of the classroom, and substitute a family breakfast table, the sequence will still constitute a teaching relationship between a more knowing questioner and a (possibly) less knowing respondent.

The effect of these constraints is that the institutional representative is understood to be the elicitor of responses, but not the addressee of those responses, which are, instead, understood to be targeted at the non-addressed news or courtroom audience. It also enforces a kind of neutralism on the institutional representative, who is deprived of the opportunity to “editorialize” on the answers that are produced (Clayman & Heritage 2002a). In mediated turn-allocation systems, there are often fewer restrictions on the content and type of contributions that can be made, but at the end of each contribution the mediator (often the “chair”) of the proceedings allocates the next turn.

The role of trial attorneys is to elicit and test the witness’s account of events in a fashion favorable to their client for the benefit of an “overhearing” and largely non-participant audience: the judge and jury. These participants are not eavesdroppers to a trial; rather, they are the persons for whose judgment the trial is being conducted. Attorneys thus should not “stand between” the witness and the jury, as would be the case if they acknowledged witness statements. Nor should they endorse them as true with “oh” acknowledgments, since judgment of the case is the job of judge and jury.
