Abstract

Tested the hypothesis of H. Maclay and C. E. Osgood (1959) that unfilled pauses (UPs) are particularly vulnerable to interruptions and that, in those situations where interruption is probable, filled pauses (FPs) should be emitted by the speaker after UPs in order to avoid interruption. Analysis of 3 2-person interactions involving a total of 4 Ss suggested that FPs are effective in reducing the probability of interruption
