The rhythm of conversation
The project Rhythm of conversation investigates how a set of rhythmic prosodic features contributes to the joint interaction control in conversations.
Of particular interest is acoustic descriptions of features related to variations in speech rate (i.e. accelerations and decelerations in speech rate) and loudness (i.e. increases and decreases in loudness), and how these are used for interactional purposes.
