Conversational Encounters (A) Focusing attention

Getting someone’s attention.
Pardon me. (for)
Hey, you! (info)

Getting someone to listen to you.
Look here. (info)
Listen here. (info)
Listen up. (info)
Do you here me?
Do I have your ear?
Am I making myself heard?

Directing attention to an object.
Get a load of this.
Take a gander at that.
Can you believe my eyes?
I don’t believe my eyes.
That’s a sight for sore eyes.

Confirming that you are paying attention.
I here you.
I’m still here.
