The Listener and Minimal Responses in Conversational Interaction.
Gardner, Rod
Prospect, v12 n2 p12-32 Sep 1997
Minimal feedback in English (e.g., "yeah, mm hm") are common in conversation but rarely found in second-language instructional materials. They can be examined best through the turn-taking system in English. We now know enough about minimal feedback to teach its use. Examples of use are presented here, with attention to intonation contours and conversational context. (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse for ESL Literacy Education) (Author/MSE)
