Comment

Continuing the trend of male domination, we can see that Daiki’s MLRs are twice that of Ayaka’s 13.6 to 6.3, and even for speaking rate, Daiki has 91.3 compared to Ayaka’s 65.9; furthermore, Daiki has 393 words compared to Ayaka’s 189. Meaningless syllables are, as always, higher with males, so Daiki has 80 compared to Ayaka’s 24. Ayaka does talk longer and provide more content, and this is to be commended. Percentage of silence is normal, 9.8%.  The conversation is more engaged and both participants are more motivated.
