This article presents critical comments and responses to Aleksandra Kasatkina’s essay “How Ethnographic Is Ethnographic Interview?” in which the author draws on her experience of fieldwork conversations with garden owners in the Leningrad region to discuss the question of how “ethnographic” the typical ethnographic interview is per se. She argues that fieldwork conversation, as an organic part of participant observation, deserves its own methods of analysis, and that such methods targeted specifically at the analysis of speech may help us receive better answers to the questions that ethnographers pose. This discussion features contributions by D.A. Baranov, D.M. Kolyadov, P.S. Kupriyanov, A.D. Sokolova, T.A. Listova, and I.A. Razumova.
