KWAL vs. Freq - different output?

Dear ChiBolts,

    Katie's email gives me an opportunity to point out a general procedural issue.  In order to answer a detailed question like this, Leonid and I (or others) would need to see 
1.  an example file that contains the problem,
2.  the command lines being used. 
3.  a description of the expected output.
4.  the actual CLAN Output file (not crucial)
Example files can easily be attached to messages being posted to chibolts at googlegroups.com and command lines can be included in the email message. 

In Katie's case, the question is just why FREQ and KWAL have different numbers, but this will depend on details of how the coding was done and the shape of the FREQ and KWAL commands.  So, we would need to see all of this.

Many thanks,

-- Brian MacWhinney

I know this is unorthodox but in order to create the subdivisions we are going through and adding @l (lexical) @s (syntactic) and @o (other) after the @fp. This data is not going to be used for any databases, I just need a systematic way to differentiate the filled pauses.

I was surprised that FREQ brought up all three of my categories and any filled pauses I missed but the numbers didn't match what I had previously. When I KWAL the transcript or find the filled pauses by hand I find the right number.
