We report on findings generated by a new method of quantified discourse analysis aimed at capturing qualities of mathematical talk according to Sfard's (2008) "communicational framework". The method is inspired by Systemic Functional Linguistic system of 'Transitivity'. Findings revealed significant differences between two instructors' mathematical talk in a teachers' college course. These differences were mainly seen in the amount of 'objectified' vs. 'personified' talk of each of the instructors.
