Thanks to those who responded to my earlier query about the translation of
some discourse terms into Spanish. Here are some of the suggestions which
I received:

repair- reparacion, reparar
turntaking- turno de habla, tomar el turno
backchannel- retrocanalizacion
cohesion- cohesion
speech act- acto de habla
frame- marco

Thanks again. I hope others find the terms useful as well.
