Abstract:

The papers brought together in this volume illustrate how spoken corpora (bethey native or learner corpora) can provide insights into various aspects of errorsand disfluencies such as pauses and discourse markers. They show, amongothers, that such phenomena can be influenced by factors like gender, age orgenre, and that they can correlate with, e.g., informativeness and syntacticcomplexity. Crucially, they also demonstrate that items which are oftendismissed as mere disfluencies can fulfil important functions and thus play anessential role in the management of spoken discourse. The book should appealto linguists who are interested in spoken language in general and in errors anddisfluencies in speech in particular, as well as to specialists in second languageacquisition and language testing who want to know more about the nature offluency and accuracy.
