Contextual constraints on the floor-apportionment function of speaker-gaze.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In accordance with G. W. Beattie's findings, the present study with 5 male undergraduates failed to demonstrate that speaker gaze at the ends of "complete" utterances universally facilitates speaker turn-taking in conversation. Gaze was effective, however, in specific psycholinguistic contexts in which hesitant phases of speech immediately preceded the speaker switch.
