"In medicine" application: Please have patience with me. I'm trying to learn Wikipedia. Editing and comments are very welcome on this subject. Thank you.


Is this another context: Backchannel, as in discussion forums. I have heard the use of the term Backchannel used here, but I was not confident enough to add it to the page - ie "Off-list" or outside the forum communications between members = using the back-channel. --Derekcx (talk) 23:10, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

In medicine[edit]

I removed quite a few statements from the medicine section due to them being speculative or outright false. I work in the industry and have specific knowledge, but can't cite sources at this time, so I opted to remove, rather than correct/change them. May do more later Markoy21 (talk) 17:11, 13 February 2008 (UTC)


it's a rather important area in the linguistics of conversation and unplanned speech. It's also known as a 'minimal response'. It certainly deserves its own page, or a stub!

The reference to Young and Lee in the linguistics section is incorrect. They are actually quoting Iwasaki (1997). Full bibliography: <Iwasaki, Shoichi. "The Northridge earthquake conversations: The floor structure and the 'loop' sequence in Japanese conversation." Journal of Pragmatics 28 (1997) 661-693.> Also this definition is only one of many. The best/most cited definition comes from Yngve (1970) and should probably appear here. Backchannels are a disputed and relatively undefined set of behaviors in linguistics. I'd be happy to write something up when I get more time, but I'm a newbie here and I don't want to mess things up. --Neill78 (talk) 06:20, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Merge with Backchannel?[edit]

There is a large amount of overlap with the article Backchannel. They should be merged. --Thüringer ☼ (talk) 10:25, 18 August 2010 (UTC) Combine all the Twitter information in one post —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:59, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Agree. So far this is just a wiktionary entry, or an overgrown disambiguation page. Any worthwhile content here should be merged into backchannel and/or wiktionary. (talk) 21:11, 4 June 2011 (UTC)
