Exploring overt speech criticism situations, this inquiry examines the communication replies of participants ensuing an event where they were criticized for their speech in a face-to-face video-recorded dyadic meeting. Individuals answered speech criticism with shunning, exculpatory, comic, cooperative, confident, and hostile approaches. More admission and adjustment are displayed when straightly replying to a critical person, more self-consciousness and aggressiveness when replying indirectly.
