For Query: Linguist 11.420
Dear Fellow Linguists,
about ten days ago I sent a question to the linguistlist about a quote
regarding the clustering of self-repair.
Many thanks to all who responded:
Some colleagues pointed me to Schegloff (1979), who found that like
self-repair, repair-initiation can occur anywhere in the turn that,
however, there are locations in which a concentration of repair-initiations
and thus repairs are observed. This was not exacly what I was looking for.
Very helpful was the following reference:
Shriberg, E. E. (1994). Preliminaries to a theory of speech disfluencies.
Doctoral dissertation, University of California, Berkeley.
1. that self-repairs tend to co-occur and
2. that the most likely position for a self-repair to occur is within the
repairing phase of another self-repair. Shriberg calls it 'synergy effect'.
Thanks again for replying to my question,
Caroline Lea Rieger
