Full Sentence Dialog Analysis
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
My research involves the analysis of full sentences and the linguistic
structure within a team task. Typically, context-free grammar analysis
is applied at a sentence level, and what I need is a similar analysis at a
dialog level (where each sentence can be treated as a complete
My problem is that I do not have the terminology that is used within
linguistics so that I can find the correct type of research references for
my work. I am confident that such research has been performed, and I
am hopeful that this listserv can guide me to the expert researchers in
this field of research. I have exhausted my resources on campus and I
am just not making any progress.
An example of what I am looking at is as follows:
**The combination of sentences creates a communication pattern.
**A very simple example with the following definitions: command (Cx),
question (Qx), statement (Sx), response (Rx), where “x”is the source.
So a C1 means that person #1 made a command and Q2 means that
person #2 asked a question, etc.
C1Q2Q3S1C1S1 versus C1Q2S1Q3C1S1
Part of my team research will be answering the following: Are these
the same communication? Do these produce the same team results?
I hope this has made some sense and that perhaps you would know of
specific linguistic researchers that are leading in this area of analysis. I
apologize for wasting anybody's time, as I am just very stuck.
Additionally, I will need to discuss the detailed conditions where the
sentences are further categorized.
