The aim of the project is to achieve a better understanding about what mediated text and talk means in a situation of use. In the project, various situations in which people encounter mediated talk and text are researched empirically. The emphasis is on the material-semiotic circumstances: how does the way language and other signs appear to the user-viewer influence the way a sign, a piece of language, etc. is interpreted. Through detailed, conversation analytically inspired empirical analyses of media and technology use/viewing, it is possible to show that the interactive accomplishment of meaning making can be subtle and intricate. The research also highlights the complexity of the context of use, not as an additional separate factor, but as intertwining text, context, and intertext into aspects of sequential interpretation in which the interacting bodies are an important resource for the (research on the) ongoing sense-making.
