|Abstract:||To develop a theory of small-group interaction in CSCL settings, we need an approach to analyzing the structure of computer-mediated discourse. Conversation Analysis examines informal face-to-face talk in terms of a fine structure of adjacency pairs, but needs to be adapted to online textual interaction and extended to analyze longer sequences built on adjacency pairs. This paper presents a case study of students solving a math problem in an online chat environment. It shows that their problem-solving discourse consists of a sequence of exchanges, each built on a base adjacency pair and each contributing a move in their collaborative problem-solving process.|
