C06 - Prominence in subordinating rhetorical relations

Does the way in which people plan and structure their speech depend on whether they feel understood and accepted by their interlocutors? In an experimental setting using online chats, we investigate how the attention of chat participants to various objects being discussed is directed by positive and negative feedback from other chat participants.
