Comments

In this discussion, Yuki’s minimal responses are very common place, often being just one word. Her fluency rate is 64.1 compared to Takaki’s 99.1, however, cross-talk pausing is only 5.7 seconds. Total amount of silence is 40.1 seconds or 6.7%. Takaki’s MLRs are a bit longer than usual, 20.9 syllables, but Yuki’s are only 7.1. So, again, male domination is to be seen with 449 words from Takaki compared to Yuki’s 137.
