- In compound TCUs, collaborative completions occur where participants engage in a joint social action to construct a single TCU as a whole. This study is based upon an empirical observation of L2 adult-child dyads from a conversation analytic perspective. The features of collaborative completions are categorized largely into five : consolidating the prior talk, co-producing of upshot, coordinating into further talk, displaying a point of convergence, and co-participating in joint action. Along with the data analysis some pedagogical implications are discussed.
