This study examines the interaction of native speakers and nonnative speakers. Six hypotheses are tested. Three of them deal with the frequencies of temporal marking, topic-continuing and topic-initiating move-es, and uninverted, wh, yes/no and tag questions. The other three hypotheses are concerned with the frequencies of nine categories of negotiation. All hypotheses were supported except two categories of one hypothesis. To test these hypotheses,eight native speakers' speech that the data were from two separate periods of collection was video-recorded, transcribed and analyzed. Analysis was done on teacher-student interaction, in team teaching in., junior high schools and senior high schools and on. English classes in a university. The study showed the same results as in studies of second language learners' FTD, but some differences were recognized in the details between EFL(team teaching) and ESL.
