“The meaning negotiation research line has taken hold in the field of second language acquisition because it has reassessed the importance of interactions between individuals involved in the process. Therefore, the purpose of this project was to identify ways of negotiation of meaning in oral interactions of the Target Language IV from the BUAP languages faculty, then categorize them according to the type of negotiation of meaning described by Long (1996). This research used a qualitative methodology since it tried to understand the phenomenon. The participants were thirty students from the target Language IV class. Eventually, the Teacher-Student and the Student-Student interactions were recorded and to collect data, a Meaning Negotiation Checklist was used as the main instrument. The results show that this process occurs hardly in the class and mostly within the Teacher- Student interaction. Accordingly, this study enables to consider a process that has not been clearly defined in the teaching and learning practices at the faculty.”
