Studies in Dialogue and Discourse: An Exponential Law of Successive Questioning
Mishler, Elliot G.
Language in Society, 4, 1, 31-51, Apr 75

Analyses of a particular type of discourse, namely, connected conversations initiated and sustained by questioning, suggest that the probability that a conversation will be continued may be expressed as a simple exponential function.
