Microanalysis of dialogue
Most of our basic and applied research involves microanalysis of face-to-face dialogue, which is the detailed and reliable examination of observable communication sequences as they proceed, moment by moment, in the dialogue.

Microanalysis can employ both qualitative and quantitative methods as well as experimental, quasi-experimental, or non-experimental designs and data. Our approach to microanalysis of face-to-face dialogue started in experimental research, then evolved for use in applied research as well.
