Laughter around the End of Storytelling in Multi-party Interaction
This research argues that the sequence organization around the end of a storytelling is affected by which of the hearers inserts a laughter to which position in the sequence. Laughters before the beginning point of possible completion of storytelling never affect on the sequence organization, while those which occur within a transition space change who is to speak first after the storytelling. Though an oriented recipient (OR) is a default candidate who can speak first after the storytelling, laughs within a transition space let the OR pass his/her own occasion for speech to another participant.
