Mao and Masaki

Mao and Masaki

The discussion is more unbalanced than others, with Masaki having 826 compared to Mao’s 242, who often relies on minimal responses. The conversation is warm but Masaki seems to be far more motivated and engaged, though he does have more repetition 23 than Mao (4), retracing (7) to Mao’s (1), and more silence 14.0 seconds compared to Mao’s (0). Masaki also has greater MLRs 19.4 which is almost native level, which is far higher than Mao’s 5.8. Recommendation is that Mao provides longer and more descriptive replies and to ask more questions.

Ken and Yuka

Ken and Yuka

This discussion is notable insofar that Yuka has longer speaking time than Ken (367.9 seconds) compared to 271.7 for Ken, thus she has 619 words compared to Ken’s 536. There is no cross talk pausing. Minimal responses are few and both participants seem to have more motivation in giving interesting replies. Speaking rate for both participants is fairly high, close to native speakers, 131.9 for Yuka and 130.7 for Ken. Acoustic and Lexical dysfluency is minimal and the only issue in syntactic dysfluency is that of Yuka’s repetition. MLRs are fairly long, 11.7 and 14.9. The discussion is warm and fluid.
