Abstract (English)

Smooth turn-taking in conversation depends in part on speakers being able to communicatetheir intention to hold or cede the floor. Both prosodic and gestural cues have been shown tobe used in this context. We investigate the interplay of pitch movements and hand gestures atlocations at which speaker change becomes relevant, comparing their use in German andSwedish. We find that there are some shared functions of prosody and gesture with regard toturn-taking in the two languages, but that these shared functions appear to be mediated by thedifferent phonological demands on pitch in the two languages.
