No time to care? Interactional hurriedness in a Japanese nursing home

研究成果: Article

抄録

The research presented in this paper is based on audio-recordings from a Japanese care facility. I focus on interactional tempo differences between residents and staff. The analysis concentrates on two interrelated phenomena that can be taken as indications of hurriedness on the part of the care workers: overlaps and turn repetitions. Presenting examples for each of the two, I also show that the staff's hurried performance does not necessarily result in a quicker completion of the care tasks. I go on to reflect on the staff's likely reasons for doing "being in a hurry," arguing that apart from real time pressures, the mere display of hurriedness can become an end in itself.
