Abstract

Highlights This article applies ethnomethodology and conversation analysis to a hitherto neglected topic, namely children’s use of everyday breaching. It analyses three instances of verbal play in order to reveal the methodological production of these. The instances are shown to involve adjacency pair organisation, preference organisation and topic/categorical organisation. It is shown that such ‘everyday’ breaching comprises one method for avoiding telling a story during the family mealtime.
