The effect of interpersonal familiarity on argument in online discussions

image of The effect of interpersonal familiarity on argument in online discussions

This study examined if common ground operationalized as interpersonal familiarity creates a discussion context in which particular argument acts are more likely to occur. Undergraduate students discussed a US state ban on gay marriage using an online chat tool. Familiarity was manipulated with a “get-to-know-you” session, and conversational argument and interpersonal act coding systems were applied to the transcripts. Compared to the control condition, familiarity produced more interpersonal, disagreement, and process acts in the discussions.
