Abstract(in Japanese) (See Japanese page)
Abstract(in English) This study is generally concerned with the notion of "common ground" in communication. It is claimed that communication is a form of joint action or collaboration. For people to act joinly in communication, they have to coordinate what they do and how they do it, and to coordinate, they have to appeal to their common ground. The question is, however, how people attain their common ground. To conclude this study, an attempt was made to integrate the notions of chain propagation, synchronicity, and social sanctions into a theory which accounts for the forming of common ground in communication.
