Editing Phrases

Abstract : Disfluencies are viewed as a performance phenomenon in most formal grammatical treatments. In this paper we provide evidence for the need to integrate disfluencies in the competence grammar. We do this by considering the properties of editing phrases (EPs). We study their distribution in the American English corpus Switchboard and the French corpus Rhapsodie. We show that English and French exhibit various distributional differences, as expected from a grammatical phenomenon. We sketch a treatment for distinct classes of editing phrases.
