Sert, O. (2015). Social Interaction and L2 Classroom Discourse. Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press.

-Shortlisted for the British Association for Applied Linguistics (BAAL) Book Prize 2016
-Finalist, American Association for Applied Linguistics (AAAL) First Book Award 2017

Social Interaction and L2 Classroom Discourse is a meticulous and well-written book that provides rigorous empirical analysis of important moments in the L2 English classroom, including the co-construction of understanding, interactional troubles and their resolution, and the microgenesis of L2 (classroom) interactional competence. It is an important contribution to the field of applied linguistics because it consolidates ideas in conversation analysis in order to make recommendations for L2 pedagogy that are both well-warranted, deriving as they do from a robust empirical record, and exceptionally practical.– American Association for Applied Linguistics Book Award Committee

By combining research and practice, this book is a comprehensive resource for in-service L2 teacher development projects and L2 language teacher education programs. Teacher educators could adopt examples and transcripts of excerpts along with visual phenomena from the book for analysis, discussion, and reflection with pre-service teachers to enable understanding of L2 learning in various contexts– Andrea Eniko Lypka, University of South Florida, The Linguist List

Sert successfully shows how CA findings can provide a deeper understanding of classroom interaction, show evidence of the development of CIC in practice, inform teacher-training programs, and potentially influence educational policy. – Lauren Carpenter, Teachers College, Columbia University, Working Papers in TESOL and Applied Linguistics

A very important contribution to both existing academic research and L2 education practice and policy.
