Couples and Other Strangers: Talk Time in Spouse-Stranger Interaction.
Fitzpatrick, Mary Anne; Dindia, Kathryn
Communication Research: An International Quarterly, v13 n4 p625-52 Oct 1986
Using "talk time" measures of spouse/stranger interaction styles, tested models of communication. Concluded that (1) a spillover interactionist model best represented the talk time data; (2) sex had no apparent effect on speaking with either a spouse or a stranger; and (3) few personality variables predicted talk time, though relationship dimensions predicted it differentially.
