The Token "Yeah" in Nonnative Speaker English Conversation.
Wong, Jean
Research on Language and Social Interaction, v33 n1 p39-67 2000
Discusses the lexical element "yeah," observed in the speech of nonnative speakers of English whose native language is Mandarin. Using the framework of conversation analysis, discusses the same-turn repair environment in which the token "yeah" occurs but reveals that the token serves as an additional component, doing something other than repair.
