This chapter deals with the temporal deployment of multiple multimodal resources mobilized by the participants in social interaction, focussing on the emer­gent temporality of turns and actions. More precisely, it analyzes the partici­pants’ mobilization of multimodal resources for achieving unit comple­tions, showing how embodied completion is visibly achieved in an emergent way, how it is possibly revised by speakers and their co-partici­pants as interaction unfolds in time, how embodied resources are integrated and embedded with language in a timely fashion. By so doing, the chapter reveals how participants use and configure complex multi­modal Gestalts in the orderly temporal arrangement of their turns, se­quences and actions. Tt shows how these multimodal Gestalts involve not only talk and gesture, but also the entire body and its movements.
