SI scoring for mental verbs

SI scoring for mental verbs

Published at: 2016-11-11

How would you use SI scoring for the use of mental verbs? Would you transcribe the following as
C: I think, it's a doggy [SI-2]. or differently?


  1. Yes, we would score this as [SI-2]. Note that if the mental verb had not contributed to the meaning of the utterance, we would ignore it when scoring for SI. For example, C And then the man ((I don't remember his name)) drove away [SI-1].
