A Review of Research on the Chinese EFL Learners’ Production of Linguistic Prosody in Turn Organization

Zhihua Xia


Prosody features play crucial roles in the management and organization of conversations, among which turn-taking plays crucial roles in conversation organization. The appropriate use of prosodic features is an indispensable part of conversation strategies or skills, but the interaction between linguistic prosody and turn-taking is difficult to be acquired for EFL learners.
