Automatic gaze analysis in multiparty conversations based on Collective First-Person Vision

Shiro Kumano, Kazuhiro Otsuka, Ryo Ishii, Junji Yamato
2015 2015 11th IEEE International Conference and Workshops on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition (FG)  
We visualize the characteristics of participants' gaze behavior as a gazeecentered heat map, which quantitatively reveals what parts of the gazee's body and for how long the participant looked at it while  ...  in a unified framework by gathering captured audio-visual signals to a centralized system and using a general conversation rule, i.e. listeners look mainly at the speaker.  ...  Thus, we first report a preliminary experiment and its results to grasp the notable characteristics of gaze behavior for self-calibrating gaze analysis.  ...

Turn-timing in signed conversations: coordinating stroke-to-stroke turn boundaries

Connie de Vos, Francisco Torreira, Stephen C. Levinson
2015 Frontiers in Psychology  
Alternatively, signed conversations may show a similar distribution of turn-timing as spoken languages, thus avoiding both gaps and overlaps.  ...  The avoidance of overlapping turns could be motivated by the difficulty of hearing and speaking at the same time. If so, turn-taking in sign might show greater toleration for overlap.  ...  We also thank Ellen Nauta for modeling in Figure 1 , Sean Roberts for comments on the quantitative analysis of the data, and the members of the Language and Cognition Department, especially Elma Hilbrink  ...

Documentary and descriptive linguistics

NIKOLAUS P. HIMMELMANN
1998 Linguistics  
Much of the work that is labeled 'descriptive' within linguistics comprises two activities, i.e. the collection of primary data and a (low-level) analysis of these data.  ...  These include the rights of the individuals and communities contributing to a language documentation, the parameters for the selection of the data to be included in a documentation, and the assessment  ...  Such editing precludes further analysis in a variety of frameworks, including discourse and conversation analysis and interactional sociolinguistics.  ...
