This chapter presents the framework for analyzing the compiled meetings in this book. The researcher uses three major qualitative approaches to examine Kuwaiti and American business meetings, Hymes’s SPEAKING model, the Sherzer and Darnell guide to the ethnographics of speech use, and Van Leeuwen’s social action network model.
