Comment

This discussion is also a bit unbalanced with the Taiki having 338 words compared to Yuki’s 178, who has too many minimal responses. MLRs are 16.9 for Taiki which is double than Yuki’s 8.8. The percentage of silence is high, 21.4%, 126.3 seconds.  Taiki’s amount of silence is a bit higher than Yuki’s, however, 29.6 seconds to Yuki’s 19.3 seconds. Taiki does have far more meaningless syllables 23 compared to Yuki’s 8.  Cross-talk pausing is fairly high; 77.4 which shows that there is some anxiety in talking between the two perhaps.
