Query:   I read an article a few years ago which compared naturally occurring data with role play, and possibly also with DCT data, focussing, as I remember, on the speech act of expression of gratitude. the findings were to the effect that naturally occurring instances took more turns and were more elaborate than the role plays. I've misplaced my reference, and would appreciate it if anyone can supply same.
