ABSTRACT
In recent years, ethnomethodological approaches of Conversation Analysis (CA) and Membership Categorization Analysis (MCA) have been applied to the study of gender and language. This yielded to discussions among scholars across the social sciences as to what extent CAMCA can inform gender studies. In this paper, this question is addressed by providing data from my corpus of interactions in a Turkish marriage show. The data is analyzed by focusing specifically on two facets of MCA suggested by Schegloff (1991): 1) category-bound activities, and 2) being protected against induction. In relation to these, the analysis shows 1) how „asking for possessions‟ is treated as an activity bound to the gender category „women‟, 2) and how after „asking for possessions‟ is established as a category-bound activity, interactants tend to protect this knowledge when a need arises to revise this knowledge.
