日本語の用語またはフレーズ あいづち
「あいづち」の言語学的用語の英訳として「backchanelling」は一般的ですか。それとも「listener acknowledgement」とか「listener feedback」はもっとよく使われますか。

backchannel(s)
説明:
For the phenomena of "あいづち", "backchannel" or "backchannels" is more suitable. However, the act of "あいづち" (or "あいづちを打つこと") is "backchennelling".

In the first link, you will see how "あいづち" is translated into English, and, in the second link, you will see some of the articls on backchannelling by other notable scholars (in particular, those at Chiba University).

¥"listener acknowledgement¥" sounds like a kind of Japanese-English. In fact, we can od two examples of ¥"listener acknowledgement¥". However, ¥"listener feedback¥" can be used as a substitite for ¥"backchannel¥". A site in the Linguistic Society of American (of which I am a member) uses this term, and it is also a good resource. In fact, Deborah Tannen is a leading scholar in sociolinguistics, and her account is very correct:

interjection


説明:
I'm not sure what the official linguistic term is, but the word "interjection" may be a possibility.

Thanks for your feedback though

反対  xxxjsl: "interjection" is 感嘆詞 or 間投詞 including "ah", "oh", and "あいづち" specifically refers to "uh uh", ''mmm", "うん", etc.

  -> Yes, interjection can include comments that aren't merely 相槌 as well. Still, no one other than linguistic scholars will know what "backchanelling" means, whereas "interjection" will give the average person an idea.

forging an affirmative response


説明:
The original meaning of this expresion is, a swordsmith forging cooperation with his swordmaster. The original expression requires that the swordsmith make an affirmative response, not a negative reply, nor a neutral reply. It's possible that even Japanese make mistakes in using this expression.
