Lists are a recurrent phenomenon in everyday conversation and have common structural features. Listing can be considered a universal, language-independent practise for the structuring of ideas and show to be a resource for a variety of purposes in interaction.
Considering their omnipresence, they have received relativly little attention in interactional research, especially in French and Spanish conversational interactions.
The main purpose of this project therefore is to analyze lists in different conversational context as complex structures that are oriented to by speakers and recipients as holistic entities. It contributes to constructional, prosodic and narrative properties of listing. Its main focus lies on multimodal aspects of list constructions.
