This current research is conducted to analyze conversation repair in selected episodes of Graham Norton Show by employing Conversation Analysis approach proposed by Sack, Schegloff, and Jefferson. The analysis covers types of repair, most-employed position of repair, and patterns of repair completion. This talk show is choosen due to its casual and natural conversation existing in the show.This research is descriptive-qualitative research. It means the research focuses more on words rather than number. Besides, this research uses theory to lead the analysis before collecting data. The data are taken from transcript of selected episodes of Graham Norton Show. The data are in form of utterences which contain repair phenomena uttered by participants. The transcripts are obtained from youtube in form of rough transcript. Then, they get some editing treatment such as editing based on turn of the participants and completing with transcription convention. After the transcripts have been obtained, the researcher collects the data by underlining. With the existing data, the researcher starts to analyzing the data by employing these steps: 1) Identfying the data by doing coding process, 2) Classifying the data by putting into data sheet, 3) Discussing, and 4) Making conclusion for the finding of the research.As the results, four types of repair appear in the talk show. Self-initiated self-repair occurs 81 times. Other-initiated self-repair is found 7 times. Self-initiated other-repair gains 6 times, and other-initiated other repair only happens twice. Regarding to the second research question, same turn position of repair becomes the most-employed position where the participants repair their trouble in conversation. For the patterns of repair, the finding shows that there are eight patterns used by participants during the talk show. They are replacement (31 times), modification (10 times), abandonment (23 times), and reorganization (5 times). In addition, the rest of patterns are regarded as new patterns of repair completion. They are completion (15 times), repetition (5 times), exemplification (3 times), and specification (4 times).
