Example text

An example of this sort of content is as follows: PERSON A: "I've been looking at holiday brochures. Everything is so expensive. " PERSON B: "Yes, I have too. I've been saving up, so it's not a problem for me"; or "I don't have that worry: I don't enjoy holidays. I'd rather stay at home. 3 They maintain the same feelings but change the topic. For example: PERSON A: "I've been looking at holiday brouchers. Everything is so expensive. " PERSON B: "I've been looking at prices of hi-fis. " Trower et al (1978) discuss how the normal pattern for timing is that one person speaks and, when he stops, the other person starts to talk, without undue silence or interruption.

3 Your best friend has a promotion. He will have to move away. Closure Schegloff & Sacks define closure as a way in which we 'organise the simultaneous arrival of the conversationalist at a point where one speaker's completion will not occasion another speaker's talk, and that will not be heard as some speaker's silence' (1973, p295). Stopping talking is not an adequate way of ending a conversation. There needs to be some form of closure which takes place and is recognized by both parties. The type of closure used will depend upon a wide range of factors, such as whether the relationship is to continue and, if so, on what basis, whether both people are in agreement as to the timing of the parting, the background and expectation of both parties and so on.

We have found the following useful areas to consider: greeting, starting and keeping a conversation going (initiating/changing/continuing topics) and parting. Greetings For those who stammer, greetings can be fraught with anxiety. Specific words are generally required ('hello', 'good morning') and perhaps a name has to be said which cannot be avoided or changed. Often the spoken part of the greeting is felt to be all that is involved and a client does not consider the impact of non-verbal aspects, such as facial expression, eye contact, proximity and so on.
