Transcript of GEL games for class

What about “um?” It means something, but what exactly? “Um” is the classic example of what linguistics terms a filler, a sound which signals a pause (rather a conclusion) to the other people involved.
Count the amount of fillers in the 1 minute
You have to draw a line and count the complete ideas or sentences and then divide them by the amount of fillers used in the minute.
Ideal score for the mad minute
15 ideas or sentences without any fillers would be great.
