Calling checklist as complete (closing checklist) 35 PNF: a:nd five hundred, 37 PF: checked. 1 into smaller and larger action sequences Organizing larger and smaller sequences of action: prosodic signaling of incompletion and completion Interaction in the airline cockpit is directed and constrained by formal manuals that outline procedures, wordings and checklists (also available in cockpit displays) that specify the actions pilots must perform and their relative ordering.

The PNF’s hand is in position on the lever, and lowers the lever, as the PF ends his talk by saying ‘thanks,’. This timing enables the PNF to complete the activity of moving the lever to lower the gear as the PF completes his turn at talk to call for this activity, and immediately after the PF has said the two critical words for the action, ‘gear down’. So the word ‘gear’ is trigger enough for the PNF to act on an understanding that the PF is calling for the gear to be lowered. The PNF completes the action by producing talk to claim that the gear is lowered and locked in place.

The PNF uses this aspect of prosody to maintain the larger action sequence (the checklist) across a series of smaller action sequences (each item) which, together, constitute that larger sequence. As before, this apparently neat prosodic patterning is broken, though again in ways that seem interactionally significant for the pilots’ creation and understanding of the sequential organization of their work. 0) a:nd landing clearance. 3) Smalltown. check’s complete. ’, line 30). This falling end pitch is one way the PNF can signal the ‘lastness’ of this item, that while this talk may be heard as projecting something from the PF to complete the item, this is the last time the PNF’s talk will do so.
