Really interesting lecture. Didn't think I'd be clever enough to understand a linguistics lecture, but Professor Anne Curzan explained it all very thoroughly and I imagine this would be as interesting to language students as to those just wanted to dip their toe into the subject.

I feel that everyone should take this course just so we know that we're all on the same page when it comes to conversation structure and etiquette. Much of the information was basic and familiar, but Curzan nonetheless finds a way to make it entertaining and insightful. This course isn't necessary if you feel that you are already pretty good at conversation and how to negotiate one, but it does bring interesting linguistic ideas to bear on conversation structure. I do feel an urge to evangelize about how the conversation floor and backchanneling work after listening. Good, short course.

Any additional comments?
absolutely worth listening to, Some of the information in here was new to me, even as a seasoned reader of effective communication books.
My only complaint is that I feel there was a lot more room for expansion on the topics... I believe her knowledge is far from tapped out and I'd love to hear more
