towards the way we speak

It is important to focus on:

dialect (eg Yorkshire, Cornish,) or sociolect (eg Standard English, or slang)
: how does the conversation flow? Are speakers hesitant or fluent? Are there repetitions, false starts, pauses, fillers?
: how do people make a conversation work well? Who dominates and how? Are there questions and interruptions? How do people get involved in the conversation? Are some people shut out? Who has the most power?
