  • Feifei Zhou


In this part, I examined the notion of social order in two main schools of thought: ethnomethodology (CA) and SAT. Both schools seek to theorize how order is produced and maintained through every speaker/hearer’s mundane language activities, while exhibiting divergences in their conceptualization and understanding of rules and intentions.
