The conversation between Temple and her mother occurs in Temple‟s

bedroom at Franklin Pierce College. Temple and her mother have just arrived in

Temple‟s new college. Before entering her room, Temple is looking around the

other rooms that are full of laugh. Each of rooms is occupied by two students.

When Temple knows that she does not have any roommates in her room, she gets

panic attack. Her mother tries to calm her down by saying “Temple, I know that

this is strange and new, but you’re going to be all right” but she keeps refusing to

stay at the college. In fact, her roommate will come in the next day. Temple feels

uncomfortable with this condition. Therefore, she gives RNP to her mother. That

is why Temple responds angrily. Firstly, Temple says “Then, I’ll go back home”.

Her utterance has indicated that she is not comfortable to the situation and

shocked because she does not have any roommates. Then, Ms Eustacia keeps

talking to give reasons why her roommate has not come. Temple says “I don’t

want to stay here by shouting to her mother and has high intonation to her voice.

It is really not polite when she must shout in talking to her mother.

The next example is not the same with the previous one. The example

below shows that individual with autism gives RNP by interruption.

(In the office room of Franklin Pierce college, Ms Ann explains to

Temple’s lecture about squeeze machine)



Lecturer II : This isn't very scientific. There is no empirical

evidence...

Temple : I can do an experiment. (Interrupt) I can... I can

see how it works on other people. I can measure

heart rates. I think it'll work on everyone.

Lecturer III : Let's talk frankly. I'm not sure you can get anything

from being at Franklin Pierce.
