How are we to decide for any two u t t e r a n c e s whether they in fact constitute an adjacency pair? Since adjacency pairs are not r e s t r i c t e d to adjacent t u r n s , the question has to be answered, in principle, for any two u t t e r a n c e s of a conversation. Edmondson (1981: 47) objects to the notion of 'adjacency pairs' for a f u r t h e r reason; he notes that certain first p a i r - p a r t s like greeting or question only allow for one single t y p e of second p a i r - p a r t , i .
2 The "Matarazzo Effect" in News Interviews The studies reviewed above reveal a s u r p r i s i n g number of fac t o r s t h a t influence the v e r b a l behaviour of communication p a r t n e r s , and it is suggested that these results hold for a variety of different activity t y p e s . From these findings a number of hypotheses can be deduced, which will be tested in this chap t e r . Additionally, t h e r e are some f u r t h e r hypotheses which are more specific to the activity t y p e of news interviews and to my data.
During either the first or the second p a r t an opaque screen was placed between the two p a r t i c i p a n t s , t h e r e b y elimi nating any visual and gestural communication between them. They summarise the r e s u l t s as follows (Jaffe & Feldstein 1970: 42f ) : The results suggest that when faced with the loss of visual-gestural cues, conversationalists often tend to alter the temporal p a t t e r n i n g of their interaction, and t h a t the sex of the conversationalists and the point in the interaction at which the loss occurs contribute to the alterations.
