Abstract(in Japanese) (See Japanese page)
Abstract(in English) We try to model what we call redundant utterances in spoken discourse: repair, disfluency, paraphrase, and repeated utterances, looking specifically at their relational and phonetic characteristics, and also to connect such formal properties to their functions in dialogue. We show that these utterances can be specified by referring to such features as the number and relation of the speakers, adJacency,lexicality, and the relation between the target item and the redundant item. It is shown that these features can be correlated with phonetic-prosodic features of these utterances.
