Comments

This conversation is notable insofar that there is an unusually high rate of cross-talk pausing 54.4, which is rather uncommon for males. The overall amount of silence is also extremely high: 136.7 seconds. Yuma has a high rate of use of L1 and a low speaking rate, 71. 4 as compared to Naoyuki’s 118.1 which is more average for this level of proficiency; however, Naoyuki does have a very high rate of repetition and meaningless syllables. Yuma’s monotone does make listening difficult, and this is one issue that should be addressed. More minimal responses in this conversation. Both participants do have a very high number of words, for Naoyuki 475, and for Yuma, 399.

Comments

This conversation is notable insofar that there is an unusually high rate of cross-talk pausing 54.4, which is rather uncommon for males. The overall amount of silence is also extremely high: 136.7 seconds. Yuma has a high rate of use of L1 and a low speaking rate, 71. 4 as compared to Naoyuki’s 118.1 which is more average for this level of proficiency; however, Naoyuki does have a very high rate of repetition and meaningless syllables. Yuma’s monotone does make listening difficult, and this is one issue that should be addressed. More minimal responses in this conversation. Both participants do have a very high number of words, for Naoyuki 475, and for Yuma, 399.
