DiSS-LPSS Joint Workshop 2010
The 5th Workshop on Disfluency in Spontaneous Speech
This paper deals with the signals that are used to express hesitation and uncertainty in conversational interactions. It studies the relation between gesturing, body posture, facial expressions, and speech, and draws conclusions of their role and function in the interpretation and coordination of interaction with respect to the basic enablements of communication. Dialogues are assumed to be cooperative activity that is constrained by the participants' roles, social obligations, and communicative situation.
