The Preference for Self-Correction in the Organization of Repair in Conversation
Schegloff, Emanuel A.; And Others
Language, 53, 2, 361-82, Jun 77
An "organization of repair" operates in conversation, addressed to recurrent problems in speaking, hearing, and understanding. Several features of that organization are introduced to explicate the mechanism producing a skewing in which self-repair predominates over other-repair, and to show the operation of a preference for self-repair.
