My scenario is to not have to go to the clarification stage as the listener is already very sure of what he/she has heard. And of course the speaker knows what he/she intended to say.
Is it possible that the speaker has subconsciously said something different from what was intended and does not know it? Which explains why he/she is sure that what was said is exactly as intended.
Please note, the word being confused here is not phonetically similar.
Thank you for your reply, so to clarify, your opinion is that there is not much chance that a person will utter something different from what he/she intends to say? (when not multi-tasking and concentrating only on the speech)
