Seminar at Speech, Music and Hearing:

Prosodic turn-taking cues in perception and production

Margaret Zellers, KTH


Prosody (intonation, loudness, speech rate, phonation quality, etc.) has often been identified alongside syntax as a cue to turn hold or turn transition in conversational interaction. However, evidence for which prosodic cues are most relevant, and how strong those cues are, has been somewhat scattered. I will present results from several experiments giving evidence that prosodic variation is involved in signalling turn-transition, and preliminary results shedding light on possible cross-linguistic differences in it is employed.
