Conversation Repairs ~ The Linguistics Zone

Conversation Repairs

When we have to correct ourselves (or others) while speaking, we make a conversation repair.

Repairs can be initiated and resolved by the speakers themselves or another conversationalist. This makes 4 different kinds of conversation repairs, listed from most to least polite:

1. self-initiated and self-repaired
2. other-initiated and self-repaired
3. self-initiated and other-repaired
4. other-initiated and other-repaired

It's pretty obvious that repairs that are initiated and repaired by oneself are more polite than those that are repaired by others. This is because there is an unspoken rule that speakers be given a chance to say what they want to say by themselves.

Conversation repairs happen for a variety of reasons: when we (or someone else) can't find the right word, when we can't hear a speaker clearly, or when we misinterpret an utterance.

The next post will provide examples of the different kinds of converation repairs mentioned above.

IMO, It gets annoying when others try to repair your grammar. I was actually at the auto sales dealership the other day and the salesman corrected me 3 times, I eventually walked out and they lost a customer.

Excellent post about conservation repair. I often correct my kids' in this regard and most other-initiated and other-repaired method is used in this procedure. Though self-initiated and self-repaired is the best method for any one yet kids have to be dependant on the last method state above.

順帝昇明二年,遣使上表曰:封國偏遠,作藩于外,自昔祖禰,躬擐甲冑,跋渉山川,不遑寧處。東征毛人五十國,西服衆夷六十六國,渡平海北九十五國,王道融泰,廓土遐畿,累葉朝宗,不愆于歳。臣雖下愚,忝胤先緒,驅率所統,歸崇天極,道逕百濟,裝治船舫,而句驪無道,圖欲見吞,掠抄邊隸,虔劉不已,毎致稽滯,以失良風。雖曰進路,或通或不。臣亡考濟實忿寇讎,壅塞天路,控弦百萬,義聲感激,方欲大舉,奄喪父兄,使垂成之功,不獲一簣。居在諒闇,不動兵甲,是以偃息未捷。至今欲練甲治兵,申父兄之志,義士虎賁,文武效功,白刃交前,亦所不顧。若以帝德覆載,摧此強敵,克靖方難,無替前功。竊自假開府儀同三司,其餘咸各假授,以勸忠節。

Repairs are extremely important if we speak a foreign language. It is annoying but if we are not corrected we will learn mistakes and it will be even harder to correct them after.

Obviously, it is good if we can find the repairs before someone ever notice it. I would rather keep going if no one notice anything. But, then it shows I have poor listeners.

Everyone make mistakes. It is kind of embarrassing when someone corrects your sentence in front of so many peoples, but you can take it as an advise & never repeat it again. Life is a continuous learning process, so we all learn from our mistakes.

Very Well written article indeed. I really like the way author has defined the four rules for repair conversation. Self motivated and self correctness is the best way for one own assessment, and I think this type of persons are the most successful persons in their daily lives. and other follows in the same order as author has mention them.

Mt. Soledad real estate said...

Sometimes, when I speak with my friends,I forgot some words and they tend to correct me. I thought it's alright but now I know it's not the most polite way. You let the speaker correct himself. That's the best and most polite way. He commits a mistake, let him correct it. Anyway, thanks for sharing this!

Dana Rosemary Scallon (born August 20, 1951 in London, England as Dana Rosemary Brown) is a former singer and Irish politician. She grew up in Derry, Northern Ireland.

In 1970 she joined as a teenager with the song All Kinds of Everything in the Euro Vision Song Contest in Amsterdam for the Republic of Ireland and brought up to then first victory for this country. Dana had until the mid-1970s, further hits in the British and Irish music charts and also worked as a radio and television presenter.

Even in Germany was very successful with their Dana singles "My first love," "Do not play with me and my happiness" or "Build your house on love." Especially with the two singles "If a girl is in love" and "Do not forget that I love you", was on the leaders of many radio charts.

Since it failed, the image of the sweetest teenager on to create TV, eased their popularity, and so they turned to the interpretation of religious (Catholic) to songs, such as Totus Tuus during the visit of Pope John Paul II in Ireland in 1979 .

In the 1980s she moved with her husband, Damien Scallon in the U.S. where she became involved with a Christian network and moderated religious nature television programs. She returned to Ireland from 1997 to run for non-party Independent for the office of President of Ireland, Mary Robinson, but she lost. In 1999 she won the Connacht-Ulster region, a seat in Parliament.

It advocates for family values and opposes abortion. When she, however, a constitutional amendment proposed by the government for greater restrictions on abortion as not strict enough refused, she lost a lot of support. When she ran again in 2002 in the Irish elections for a seat, she was granted only 3.5 percent of the vote in her constituency.

In the elections for European Parliament in 2004 failed Scallon a new parliament. Then she focused again on a president in 2004 but was not nominated.

The island of Cyprus has been known since ancient times, mainly because it provided the copper throughout the Mediterranean basin, feature it draws its name. The history of Cyprus was very hectic and the island suffered many guardianships. Cyprus was also known for its many plantations and spices.

The current Republic of Cyprus gained independence from the United Kingdom August 16, 1960. It retains to this day two sovereign bases in the south and east of the island are stationed close to 4200 soldiers.

Following the military dictatorship that is taking place in Greece, many opponents fled to Cyprus. 15 July 1974 the National Guard headed by Greek officers launched an attempted coup against President Makarios with the help of the armed group EOKA B (not to be confused with EOKA who wanted to achieve the Enosis, that is to say the unification of Cyprus with Greece). July 20, Turkey intervened militarily under the pretext of protecting the interests of the Turkish community by launching Operation Attila, and occupies the north of the island in two days (ensuring control of 34% of the territory). In Greece, the refusal of the army to get involved further in this conflict marked the end of the dictatorship of the colonels. Once restored the republic of Cyprus, Turkey refuses to withdraw and requires the partition of the country on both sides of the Green Line (the "Attila line" by the Turks). 200,000 Cypriots were forced to flee between 1974 and 1975, driven from the territory occupied by Turkey, the Turks are forced to move north in 1975 at the request of their leader Rauf Raif Denktaş, during talks in Vienna ( Austria). February 13, 1975, is set up the "Turkish Federated State of Cyprus" which is recognized only by Turkey. In 1983 he became the "Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus [5]. The UN has disapproved the occupation in its resolution 541 of November 18, 1983. UNFICYP took control of the green line and enforce the cease-fire. Turkey leads then, like the Ottoman policy of massive displacement of populations, successive campaigns of forced emigration to the occupied part of Cyprus (systematically condemned by UN resolutions) to strengthen its demographic weight (18% population for 34% of territory) and Turquise the North Island [6]. Thus, there are now on the island 93,000 settlers from Turkey [7].

In 2003, the prospect of the entry of Cyprus into the European Union allows a first thaw, with the opening of crossing points along the green line, and a mission of good offices of UN Secretary Kofi Annan. But the Annan plan, which comes after thirty years of fruitless negotiations and proposing to establish a confederal state, allowing each Confederate state created to prevent the installation of more than a third of residents of the other community on its soil, accepted more than 65% by inhabitants of the North Island, was rejected by 70% those of the South (Greek part therefore) in a referendum. In this referendum, for the first time, mass protests, bringing to 50 000 people were held in the occupied part of Cyprus, during which the Turkish Cypriot community has openly challenged the policy under guardianship Ankara "President" Rauf Denktash, called for his resignation and expressed its desire to link with the southern part [8]. On 1 May 2004, the Republic of Cyprus enters the European Union with a part of its territory still occupied by Turkey militarily. The resumption of negotiations between both parties, and any progress towards a solution to this conflict of fact between the two communities for over forty years, now seems largely conditioned by the progress of negotiations on the accession of Turkey to Europe. Creation since 2005 of crossings from one side to another, allowing people to renew contacts gives a glimmer of hope for an improvement of the situation.
