Singlish Utterance Segmentation

The Basics

For most cases, utterance segmentation should be based on a speaker's turn. One turn equates to at least one utterance, though one turn may be made up of multiple utterances.
A Singlish particle tends to be utterance final, and therefore the use of one of these particles (e.g., “lah”) signals the end of an utterance and the start of a new one.
Interjections that are used utterance initial are considered a part of the utterance it begins, even when there are multiple of them.
