And, ah, of course my friends have a dream. And, uh, our↑ each dream is different, but, uh, we have, ah, each motivation. So, the, sometimes, you know the people, ah: can’t cope with the trouble, or the struggling with the some challenges.

Comment

This is one of the more fluent discussions marked by high speaking rates, Yuka’s 129.2 and Masaki’s 140.1, and with no cross-talk pausing. The percentage of silence is very low 0.8%, 5.3 seconds. Average mean length runs (MLRS) are also very high, with Masaki having 25.1 and Yuka’s 13.2; however, as males tend to dominate discussions, this is also the case, with Masaki having 669 words compared to Yuka’s 348.  Minimal responses are few.

This is one of the more fluent discussions marked by high speaking rates, Yuka’s 129.2 and Masaki’s 140.1, and with no cross-talk pausing. The percentage of silence is very low 0.8%, 5.3 seconds. Average mean length runs (MLRS) are also very high, with Masaki having 25.1 and Yuka’s 13.2; however, as males tend to dominate discussions, this is also the case, with Masaki having 669 words compared to Yuka’s 348.  Minimal responses are few.
