Research - transcription
Interviews must be converted to text before you can analyse them.
This is called "transcription"
Transcribe = "to write down exactly what people say", including:
|Repetitions||I like like dogs better than cats|
|Fillers||I um like dogs better than uhh cats|
|Contractions||I like dogs better'n cats|
|Mistakes||I likes dogs more better than cats|
|Restarts||I like dogs/I like dogs better than cats|
|Truncations||I li- like dogs better than cats|
|Pauses||I like … cats better than …dogs|
|Missing bits||I like [inaudible] better than cats|
|Uncertain bits||I like [?]|
|Other bits||I like [loud noise from kitchen] …uh hold on|
|Emphasis||I like cats but not dogs|
Some research types (Discourse analysis, conversation analysis) also mark:
|Pause length||I like [:5] cats better than dog|
|Non-verbal||I like [scratches nose] cats better than dog|
|Overlaps||A: I like dogs. [And I like cats]|
|B:-_________________[How about cats.] Oh you do? Me too|
Each line needs to have the student's pseudonym ("Bob") and a line number (1,2,3), because otherwise when you do a cut and sort analysis you won't know what comes from where.
