Between Speaking and Listening: The Vocalisation of Understandings.
Gardner, Rod
Applied Linguistics, v19 n2 p204-24 Jun 1998
Argues that some important aspects of listening as an interactive skill have been neglected in second-language teaching, including the receipt tokens "yeah,""mm hm," and "mm," and that such items should be taught as part of the development of conversational skills. Characteristics of these items' placement in talk sequences, prosodic shape, pause environment, and speakership incipiency are outlined. (Author/MSE)
