This paper deals with overlaps in spoken Maltese. Overlaps are studied in samples from two different corpora; one consisting of Map Task dialogues; and the other of free face-to-face conversations. The results show that the number and function of the overlaps vary with the presence or absence of pre-defined roles; the nature of the dialogue and the subjects’ familiarity with the situation. Overlaps are used to achieve optimal information exchange in the Map Task dialogues; and are a sign of ease and familiarity in the free conversations.

Keywords: overlapping; face-to-face conversation; Map Task dialogues; Maltese
