Yingnian TaoPhD student
I am interested in conversational interaction in the mundane settings (e.g. friends talk, family talk) and institutional settings (e.g. television talk show, medical interview). I am using both the CA method and pragmatic method to investigate the mechanism of the "disorderly" but interesting interactional exchange. The methodology I am using features qualitative and quantitative corpus-based models of analysis and statistical modelling in R.
PhD Supervision Interests
My PhD research project is about conversational interruption in ordinary and institutional settings in Chinese. Statistical models will be used to measure the correlation between linguistic dimensions and intrusiveness of interrupting utterances. I am also interested in programming.
