This inquiry explores prototypically “turn-final” pitch features (fall-to-low) at points of possible turn-completion where the same speaker continues. The inquiry results should serve as caution to researchers concerning an overemphasis on intonation when describing and assaying talk-in-interaction. Data are from audio recordings of American English telephone calls.
