The Yes, and...' Interrupt

Description | Example | Discussion | See also

 

Description

Say 'Yes, and...', then adding what you want to say.

This may be an addition to what the other person says, building on what they have established.

It may also disagree or take the conversation off in a completely different direction (or resume what you were saying before you were interrupted by them).

Example

Yes, and I want to go out tomorrow.

Yes, and as I was, saying,...

Yes, that would seem right, and when I have

Discussion

This is a form of agreement interrupt, where you appear to be saying to the other person 'I agree with you'. In practice, you may not actually be agreeing, but the initial words send the signal which may well sustain and even propagate agreement.

'Yes, and' is often a very useful alternative to 'Yes, but', and can be used in a completely replaceable way. The only difference in effect is that it is harder for the other person to object to what you say or try to take back control of the conversation.
