Simultaneous speech

There is only one example of simultaneous speech in the discussion, which occurs between the two speakers most co-operative towards one another, G5 and G6:

82. G5: =a (.) Olivia finally falls for the Duke

G6: falls for the Duke

The single occurrence of this feature supports other indications that G5 and G6 are the speakers who are most co-operative towards each other in the discussion.
