Abstract:

The Feedback signals are verbal or nonverbal means, which express the attitudes and relations between interlocutors. There are convergent and divergent strategies in communications and I study the role of feedback signals in these strategies. In the paper I observe some functional cases of feedback signals appearing, as overlaps, interruptions, repetitions, appeals, index signs, pause, and I compare their usage and their meaning in two TV genres – an interview and a discussion. In conclusion I show most typical convergent and divergent feedback signals for each of these genres and for journalist’s interactive styles.
