Listening in on Monologues and Dialogues.
Tree, Jean E. Fox
Discourse Processes, v27 n1 p35-54 1999
Compares the communicative effectiveness of spontaneous monologues and dialogues on nonparticipating addressees overhearing talk. Finds that overhearers were more accurate at following instructions in a referential communication task when listening in on dialogues than when listening in on monologues. Suggests greater number of discourse markers helps overhearers follow the speech of multiple interlocutors and are more informative than one perspective. (SR)
