Comment

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.

Comment

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.
