Abstract

Interruption cannot be defined solely as a turn-taking problem but can be considered also as an instance of linguistic and social rudeness, which varies from one speech community to another. This study examined gender differences of students in the use of interruption for peers and parents. For this purpose a questionnaire is prepared including situations about agreement, assistance, clarification, disagreement, tangentalization and topic change of interruption categories. It is hoped that the results will shed light on the linguistic gender differences of students while using interruption skills in class activities.
