We previously developed an approach to spoken Russian monologic discourse, and are now extending that, looking primarily at interactional multi-party discourse, contextualizing speech phenomena as multichannel (multimodal) communication. The evidence analyzed is the Russian Pear Chats and Stories corpus, see <multidiscourse.ru>. Scores transcripts are introduced to annotate the interlocutors’ shared time line, including periods of silence. The elementary discourse unit (EDU) is posited as a central building block of local discourse structure. Canonical EDUs coincide with clauses; additionally, subclausal, superclausal, and paraclausal EDUs are found. Prosodic phenomena are considered; EDUs and groups of EDUs are accounted through a discourse-semantic category of phase. Disfluencies and other structural phenomena are systematically treated. Conventions of discourse transcription capture both prosodic and functional aspects of discourse.
