Comment

The percentage of silence is relatively low, 1.6% or 9.7 seconds, and the speaking rates for both participants is relatively high, Ken’s 128.9 or 107.0. There is no cross-talking pausing. Ken’s MLRs are fairly long, but Mao’s is very short 5.5, and there are too many minimal responses on her part. Longer, and more engaged replies are important, so the current discussion is actually a bit unbalanced. Ken does have far more meaningless syllables 128 as compared to Mao’s—32. Ken also has a high level of repetition.

Comment

The percentage of silence is relatively low, 1.6% or 9.7 seconds, and the speaking rates for both participants is relatively high, Ken’s 128.9 or 107.0. There is no cross-talking pausing. Ken’s MLRs are fairly long, but Mao’s is very short 5.5, and there are too many minimal responses on her part. Longer, and more engaged replies are important, so the current discussion is actually a bit unbalanced. Ken does have far more meaningless syllables 128 as compared to Mao’s—32. Ken also has a high level of repetition.
