Pitch Slope and End Point as Turn-Taking Cues in Swedish
2015 (English)In: Proceedings of the 18th International Congress of Phonetic Sciences, London: International Phonetic Association , 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper examines the relevance of parameters related to slope and end-point of pitch segments for indicating turn-taking intentions in Swedish. Perceptually motivated stylization in Prosogram was used to characterize the last pitch segment in talkspurts involved in floor-keeping and turn- yielding events. The results suggest a limited contribution of pitch pattern direction and position of its endpoint in the speaker’s pitch range to signaling turn-taking intentions in Swedish.
