On tongue-clicking in English and Chinese conversation
Tomoko Endo (Tsukuba U.) TL2016-28
Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Tongue-clicking is often observed in English and Chinese conversations. Through the analysis of the positions of occurrences of tongue-clicking, this paper seeks the proper positioning of tongue-clicking as a repertoire of vocal behaviors. In both English and Chinese, tongue-clicking is mostly found in the turn-initial position and the turn-medial position with disfluency. As such, tongue-clicking seems to be related to filled pauses. However, since tongue-clicking does not last long in time, it is better characterized as giving momentum to one’s own talk rather than buying time.
