In this assignment, you need to use the basic analytic concepts of the system for turn-taking in conversation, introduced in the lectures: turn-constructional unit (TCU), point of possible completion (PPC), transition relevance place (TRP), and projection, as well as the basic rules of speaker allocation/selection. Do not refer to orthography (e.g. full stops, commas) in your discussion, as this is not relevant in spoken dialogue.
1. Compare the arrowed turns in the two dialogues (example 1, line 7 and example 2, lines 1-3). Compare what is happening in each case in terms of turn construction using the concepts of the turn-taking system. In your answer, refer to specific line numbers and quote the text.
Note 1: there are three arrowed turns in example (2): make sure you discuss what’s happening in line 1 and, separately, what’s happening in lines 2-3.
Note 2: the ‘equals sign’ (=) represents ‘latching’ or very fast transition from the end of one TCU to the beginning of the next TCU (as discussed in lecture/tutorial). You should comment on this phenomenon in cases where it is relevant.

2. Consider the sections of overlapping talk in example (3) (see lines 03 and 04) and in example (4) (see lines 08 and 09). In each case indicate how the overlap is generated, with reference to the components and rules of the turn-taking system. In your answer, refer to specific line numbers and quote the text.

3. Compare the overlapping talk in example (5) (see lines 03 and 04) with that in (3) – how is (5) different from (3) in terms of how the turn-taking rules have allowed the overlap to occur? In your answer, refer to specific line numbers and quote the text.
