    Abstract

    Here I offer a reminder of some of the phenomenological and ethnomethodological roots of conversation analysis (CA) in the form of a set of 'field propositions'. Over the years, CA has certainly 'branched out' from those roots. However, I believe a reminder is timely if we are to prevent a drift towards a rather mechanistic approach to the study of everyday cultural objects such as conversations and their ilk.
