This paper aims to explore form and function of overlap and interruption sequences in a classroom talk and how they affect the formation of gender and language identities of pupils in Serbian and Hungarian classes during the final year of bilingual primary schools in Subotica (Vojvodina) in the year 2015. The basic unit of analysis is one IRE-circle presented in turn, consisting of multiple or single speech contributions of actors, which are further divided into single predications as the smallest units of analysis. The corpus consists of the fine transcript of two video recordings of mother tongue lessons in Serbian and Hungarian classes during the final year of primary schools. The results confirm the differences in overlaps and interruptions performed by male and female pupils and by a teacher in both cultural micro-groups. They are mostly cooperative but there also some intrusive interruptions in a classroom talk that influence the conversational status of participants. The classroom talk is the socialization model and affects the formation of stereotypical gender-based behavioral patterns of female and male pupils.

Keywords: classroom talk, gender, interruptions, language, overlaps
