  1. Interrupted Other Speaker is calculated from the total number of utterances which follow an interrupted utterance of another speaker. An interrupted utterance is typically "cut off" by the other speaker. The utterance is marked with a ^ as end of utterance punctuation. And example might be: C But I want the b*^ E Do you want to learn a new game? Interruptions are coded differently than overlaps. Overlapping speech occurs when one person starts speaking before the other person ends. Overlapping segments are marked with angle brackets < >. And example might be, E Look at the . C a funny hat. The calculation for utterances with overlapping speech is the number and percent of the total utterances which contain at least one segment of overlapped speech in any part of the utterance.
