Summary/Abstract: Dear Chuck: From the time I first read “The interactive construction of a sentence in natural conversation” (Goodwin, C. 1979) and soon thereafter worked with the “Auto Discussion” video in Manny’s data sessions, my fascination with human interaction has been co-constructed through encounters with you and your work. Your presence in my community of friends and scholars has influenced all my work. As just two examples, when Barbara Fox, Sandy Th ompson and I wrote “Practices in the construction of turns: The ‘TCU’ Revisited” (1996), based a clip from the very start of “Auto Discussion,” we aspired to engage a Goodwinian perspective on the notion of a linguistic unit. Likewise, my paper “Contingency and units in interaction” was inspired by what I was learning from you about “the simultaneous production of multiple trajectories, including sound, bodily gesture, lexico-grammar, and recurrent structures of collaborative action” (Ford 2004: 31).
