    Need help with the word "yield" and thank you.

    I'm watching a US Senate debate on C-SPAN.

    They get started to talk, they say "I yield." They end the talks, they say "yield back."

    yield & yield back

    What do they mean??

    Your answer will be appreciated.

    Thank you.
    Well, what if "I yield myself 30 seconds"? They often say I yield myself xx seconds. And they start to talk.
    Does it mean I give myself xx seconds to talk?
