Participants at work can time their relative turns at talk, moment-to-moment, in ways that realize the interests, demands, goals and constraints of the setting, and so to accomplish work acceptably. I will examine transcriptions from recordings of naturally occurring interaction from one specific collaborative work setting: the airline cockpit.

In performing some current action, participants generally project (empirically) and require (normatively) the production of a ‘next’ or range of possible ‘next’ actions to be done by another participant. Moreover, in constructing a turn at talk, they normally address themselves to immediately preceding talk, and design their contributions in ways that exploit this basic positioning. g. an invitation) and so on. Within this framework, the grasp of a ‘next’ action that a current projects, the production of that next action, and its interpretation by the previous speaker – are the products of a common set of socially shared practices.
