The purpose of the Language and Social Interaction (LSI) website is to promote the understanding and development of speech and language processes. LSI scholars in this division are concerned with the utilization of speech, language, or gesture in human communication including studies of discourse processes, face-to-face interaction, communication competence, speech act theory, cognitive processing, and conversation analytic, ethnographic, ethnomethodological, and sociolinguistic scholarship.

The NCA LSI websites is a work in progress. This is a website for the LSI community. Our goal is to disseminate information about LSI for communication and related fields. If you have suggestions for organization, content, or whatever else, please contact the LSI Information Officer/webmaster. All suggestions are welcome and invited!
