DiSS-LPSS Joint Workshop 2010
The 5th Workshop on Disfluency in Spontaneous Speech
In this paper, we present the outline of a new model of turntaking that is applicable not only to smooth transitions but also to transitions involving overlapping speech. We identify acoustic, prosodic, and syntactic cues in overlapped utterances that elicit early initiation of a next turn, based on a quantitative analysis of Japanese three-party conversations, proposing a model for predicting a turn's completion in an incremental fashion using sources from units at multiple levels.
