Prosody as an Interactional Resource: Turn-Projection and Overlap.
Wells, Bill; Macfarlane, Sarah
Language and Speech, v41 n3-4 p265-94 Jul-Dec 1998
Examines two empirical issues regarding conversational exchange: what it is about talk that helps next speakers recognize that current speakers have finished and why overlap occurs if precise mechanisms exist to help speakers project turn completion. Distinguishes between contributions from dialog partners that are turn-competitive versus those that are not. Findings from two studies are examined. (SM)
