Summary:   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:
LIZ SHRIBERG
JAKOB LADEFOGED
ROB PHILBURN
ILKKA ARMINEN
MIE FEMOE

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 REEPAIRS 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.
SHE FOUND:
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
