Comments

This discussion between Yuri and Megumi shows a higher level of speaking rate for Yuri, 104.6 and a lower one for Megumi. There is a low rate of silence 5.7%, and both girls are very animated. MLRs are 7.6 for Yuri and 6.5 for Megumi, and there is low acoustic dysfluency 5.0%, as well as a low lexical and syntactic dysfluency, though the levels of repetition could be lower. The interaction is balanced, with 254 words for Yuri and 248 for Megumi. In short, this is a good example of fluency in same-sex interactions, though minimal responses are a bit too frequent.
