The conversation analysis

This is the analysis of conversation in “Disturbed” movie. This dialogue, or conversation
between Minnie, Ashley, Kale, and Ronald, in order to accomplish their duty, and their
mission. The place of conversation between Minnie and Ashley get in the store.
Conversation between Ashley and Kale by the phone, and the last conversation between
Kale and Ronald also by phone. In my opinion, they didn’t do a good conversation, such
as style, they are speaking so fast because in a hurry, no longer pauses between turns, and
overlap.
