Example 1: Meeting is an occasion when people come together to discuss or decide something. (Oxford dictionary) Schwartzman (1989) gives the following definition: A communicative event involving three or more people who agree to assemble for a purpose ostensibly related to the functioning of an organization or a group. (Birte, 2009)
Example 2: The change talk means to determine this talk will bring about changes for this meeting. The sustain talk expresses that participants are resistant to this change in the meeting. (Klonek, Paulsen, & Kauffeld, 2015) These two are on the contrary.
Example 3: The key to holding an effective meeting is knowing what the meeting is about before it begins. (Aronauer, 2006)
