An ELT Glossary : Utterance

Definition and Examples: What is said by any one person before or after another begins to speak. It may consist of one word - eg B's reply below - or a much longer stretch of speech, as in what A says below, or even as in one long, uninterrupted turn such as a presentation or speech.

A : Oh, did I tell you I saw John yesterday? He got that job he applied for - the one in New York. Did you know?
B : Yes.
