Title: TURN-TAKING IN AN EFL DISCUSSION TASK
Authors: Munby, Ian

Abstract: This paper begins with a discussion of the importance of sociolinguistic, discourse, and strategic competence, and turn-taking in particular, in EFL small group discussion activities. Data from a transcript of an audio-cassette recording of a 13-minute task-based discussion between four pre-intermediate level Japanese adult learners is analyzed to reveal how turn-taking mechanisms are realized. Additional data was obtained from observations about the non-verbal behaviour of the participants during the task and also notes taken during an interview with them after the task was completed. Following an assessment of how well the participants fulfilled the task in terms of content, or ideas presented, "real world" constraints which may have affected their performance are examined. Socio-cultural factors affecting turn-taking are also described. Despite these factors and constraints, there is evidence to suggest that the participants do not manage turn-taking effectively. Finally, implications for the classroom are discussed.
