Ellen TV show. disclaimer: I do not take any ownership for the video displayed above, the video is being used for educational purposes and not for public display.

Back channel- They used words like 'yeah' and 'right' to show that they were acknowledging what the speaker was saying. (Can be found all over the video)

Discourse marker -They used 'but' in the middle of their sentence to mark a boundary in their first decision. (Can be found at 2:11)

Ellipsis- Words like 'wow' and other ellipsis were used throughout the whole video.

The people in this clip were using informal unplanned speech.
