If the diagram has opposite values of the beginning/end of the two components as in (up_agr, b,default_disagree v_head, e,shake), this may indicate that the shaking of the head began earlier than the disagreements could be observed – which shows that this is also a possible variant of the pragmatic situation. “default_disagree” = an element of the contract class, i.e. a default opinion event. Before we look at the actual analysis of convergence patterns, we look at some basic data about the corpus as a whole. With these ideas in mind, a detailed note was made on the 222 recordings. Recognition of these variants of the agreement/objection is a key factor for mediating a successful conversation: incompetence or misinterpretation of compliance events can even lead to the total failure of the given interaction. . . .
