    The Interactive Constitution of Interculturality: How to Be a Japanese with Words. [REVIEW]Aug Nishizaka - 1995 - Human Studies 18 (2-3):301 - 326.
    This paper starts with questioning the traditional approach to the so-called intercultural communication. Most students of intercultural communication, it seems, use the categories characterising a cultural or ethnic identity, such as Western, Indian, European, Aboriginal and the like, as parameters by reference to which some distinctive phenomena observed in conversational materials should be explained. Even though they may apply these categories correctly, they do not take into account the relevancy of these categories in each interaction.The aim of this paper is (...)

    Hand Touching Hand: Referential Practice at a Japanese Midwife House.Aug Nishizaka - 2007 - Human Studies 30 (3):199-217.
    This article focuses on referential practices at a Japanese midwife house, where at prenatal examinations, a midwife palpates a pregnant woman’s abdomen with her hands, without any assistance from an ultrasound scanner. The midwife often refers to spots on the abdomen in palpation with locative demonstrative expressions. I demonstrate that ways in which references to spots on the pregnant woman’s abdomen are accomplished are subtly different, depending on the action sequence in which they are embedded. The description of referential practices (...)

  4. Instructed Perception in Prenatal Ultrasound Examinations.Aug Nishizaka - 2014 - Discourse Studies 16 (2):217-246.
    The purpose of this study is to elucidate various practices for the structuring of images on an ultrasound monitor during prenatal ultrasound examinations. This study focuses on the practices that healthcare providers employ to invite pregnant women to differentiate a gray-tone image on the ultrasound monitor from the image’s background. In sequential environments in which pregnant women display difficulty in differentiating an image on the screen in response to the healthcare provider’s invitation, the healthcare provider employs practices that require additional (...)

    Doing Interpreting Within Interaction: The Interactive Accomplishment of a `Henna Giajin' Or...Aug Nishizaka - 1999 - Human Studies 22 (2-4):235.
    The aims of this paper are: (1) to criticize the traditional conception of understanding in sociology; (2) to show how doing interpreting is achieved within the activity the participant is currently involved in; (3) to show how an individual's special characteristics, e.g., a "strange foreigner," are constructed and used within the actual trajectory of interaction; and (4) to demonstrate how the participants in the so-called intercultural communication 'do cultural differences' within interaction.

    Seeing and Knowing in Interaction: Two Distinct Resources for Action Construction.Aug Nishizaka - 2021 - Discourse Studies 23 (6):759-777.
    Using the methodology of conversation analysis to examine interactions in outdoor activities, this study explores how participants specifically see an object or event in the development of an activity. In particular, the distinction between perception and knowledge is oriented to by the participants as a practical issue that informs their alternative action constructions. This distinction matters as a resource for implementing an action in an interaction. The data are in Japanese with English translations.
