Taalbeheersing (discourse studies) as DJ: your wish is our command. Or do we have more to offer?

Jansen, this issue, argues that researchers in the area of Taalbeheersing (discourse studies) should conduct more practically relevant research. He elaborates on the case of motivational interviewing, proposing that interaction analysts should set up research to explain the causes of the success of this popular professional technique. In response, we claim that Jansen fails to do justice to the current state of affairs. In the area of conversation analysis, there is a rich tradition and even a recent upswing of applied research, which has also contributed to the development of training methods and intervention studies. Centrally, these conversation analytic studies interact with professionals’ ideas and theories about their own communication. We provide two examples of recent research that shed light on professionals’ interaction, both adding to, expanding and correcting assumptions about the communication. In sum, we argue that discourse studies (CA specifically) have more to offer than providing answers to professionals’ questions. Our research constitutes a theoretically and empirically driven dialogue which leads to both answers and new questions.
