“Well, that's one way”: Interactivity in parsing and production

  • Christine Howes (a1), Patrick G. T. Healey (a1), Arash Eshghi (a1) and Julian Hough (a1)

We present empirical evidence from dialogue that challenges some of the key assumptions in the Pickering & Garrod (P&G) model of speaker-hearer coordination in dialogue. The P&G model also invokes an unnecessarily complex set of mechanisms. We show that a computational implementation, currently in development and based on a simpler model, can account for more of this type of dialogue data.
