Prosodic and Social Dimensions of Entrainment in Dialogue

Résumé : When people speak together, they often adapt aspects of their
speaking style based upon the style of their conversational partner.
This phenomena goes by many names, including adaptation, alignment, and
entrainment, inter alia.  In this talk, I will describe experiments in
English and Mandarin prosodic entrainment in the Columbia Games Corpus
and in the Tongji Games Corpus, large corpora of speech recorded from
subjects playing a series of computer games.  I will discuss how
prosodic entrainment is related to turn-taking behaviors and to several
measures of task and dialogue success.  I will also discuss experiments
relating entrainment to several social dimensions, including likeability
and dominance. This is joint work with Stefan Benus, Agustín Gravano,
Ani Nenkova, Rivka Levitan, Laura Willson, and Zhihua Xia.
