None of the above is stated in so many words in the headline. The headline does not provide all the details, and at least on the surface several other readings are possible. Yet we, as readers, seemingly have no problem in understanding what the headline is describing. Somehow we assemble a sense of the headline. Let us first, then, spell out our own understandings of the headline.
This means that the members’ methods of understanding, reasoning, co-ordinating, decision-making and so on are to be found in, and only in, the situated activities themselves: they are part and parcel of those activities, not separate from them. In following the threestep procedure, ethnomethodology is guided by several methodological principles for the conduct of analysis. The principles we outline below are used to structure the kinds of analyses and descriptions that are then offered to the reader.
Thus, unlike traditional ethnographic inquiry where the reader has to trust the ethnographer’s word that descriptions of scenes are adequate, for ethnomethodology the data upon which analytic descriptions are based and to which they refer must be available for inspection by the reader. It is only in this way that the reader will be in a position to check the claims of the analyst. In other words, the readers of any analysis should be able to check any analytic rendition of the text or talk’s form or content against the original data.
