Abstract  This study explores how Japanese speakers(JS)and English speakers(ES)identify and categorize each other through face-to-face interactions in English. Fifty-four sets of paired conversations between JS and ES were examined using a conversation analytic approach(“membership categorization devices” by Sacks(1972a, b)). The results show that the following two types of dichotomous membership categories frequently emerge in conversation: a. Japanese vs. non-Japanese, and b. English teachers vs. English learners. A close observation of excerpts suggests that ES tend to oppose being defined as “non-Japanese” while JS are ambivalent about being continually corrected and encouraged to improve their English language abilities.
