Abstract

The present study seeks to explore the linguistic features within conflict talks in English majors’ polylogues, namely group discussions, under the theoretical framework proposed by Scott Suzanne, and outline the multiple linguistic features which work together to index conflict talks. It has been found that negations, discourse markers, and modals are the top three most frequently used in the lexical level, and a long turn is always dominant in the conflict talks which apparently is different from the ones in Scott’s study.
