- This study aims at analyzing the beginning sequence and the anchor point of the telephone conversations in the English textbooks for Korean middle school based on the telephone conversation study in Schegloff(1986). Furthermore, it is discussed whether the beginning sequence of the telephone conversation in the English textbooks follows the native speakers’ unique features
found in Schegloff’s previous research(1986). Throughout the investigation, the distributions in the English textbooks contrasts sharply with the canonical pattern, and these differences might hinder the L2 learners to be exposed in the real talk-in-interaction.
