Project "Multimodal Interaction"

Subproject: "Multimodal resources of action"

The subproject focuses on the limits of action ascription, especially with regard to the bodily dimensions of action.

Specifically, it examines

  • reactions to previous non-verbal behavior,
  • multiple responses to previous turns in multi-person interactions,
  • proactive actions as a consequence of interpreting non-verbal behavior,
  • on-line adaptations of utterance production in response to simultaneously produced recipient responses,
  • transformation of gestures in terms of coordination with talk and their contribution to the formation of action units.
