I'm sorry, the example is unreadable.
In observation one :
V1: hello John Smith how are you?
V2 John Smith
V1_1 hello
V1_2 how are you?

Observation two:
V1: I’m fine Jane, how about you?
V2: Jane,
V1_1 I'm fine
V1_2 how about you?

So the splitting of V1 varies from observation to observation
depending on the string text in V2
Hope this makes sense
