    Conversational Maxims - Erika Hall

    Conversational Maxims - Erika Hall

    Many of the conversational design principles are based on the idea of the cooperative principle, which states people work together cooperatively in conversation. The principle was defined by Linguist Paul Grice, and it is supported by four conversational maxims, with a fifth being added from linguist, Robin Lakoff. These simple maxims make the foundation for much of voice design. Erika Hall joins the show to give a detailed look at these maxims, which are the Maxim of Quality, Quantity, Relation, Manner and Politeness, and you'll learn how to apply these ideas into your conversational interfaces and experiences.

Enriching series

I appreciate the variety in topics that are discussed in this podcast series. Each episode has a new perspective to offer and an introduction to a new area to later deep dive into! It features thought leaders in these various spaces and I’ve found each episode to be enriching and engaging. This has now become a part of my weekend ritual to learn more about voice first design. Looking forward to more learning!
