Comments

This gendered discussion is interesting insofar that both participants really seemed to enjoy talking, so the percentage of silence is low, around 3.5%. Cross-talk pausing is not evident. There was a high rate of speaking rate for Shohei 122.7 as compared to Megumi’s, which was somewhat low 58.9. One issue that is apparent from the transcript is the very high level of minimal responses, so longer replies could help to improve the overall fluency of both participants.
