Conversation Orientation and Cognitive Process: A Comparison of U.S. Students in Initial Interaction With Native- versus Nonnative-Speaking Partners.
Chen, Ling
Human Communication Research, v29 n2 p182-209 Apr 2003
Compares thought patterns, perceptions of interaction (perceived interaction smoothness and interaction involvement), and conversation orientation of U.S. students in dyadic interaction with a partner who is either another American or a non-American nonnative speaker of English. Finds U.S. participants with nonnative-speaking partners perceived interaction as more difficult and showed more confusion than did their counterparts with native-speaking partners. Finds interaction involvement contributed most to variation in perceived interaction smoothness. (SG)
