The paper describes the design of a novel corpus of respiratory activity in spontaneous multiparty face-to-face conversations in Swedish. The corpus is collected with the primary goal of investigating the role of breathing for interactive control of interaction. Physiological correlates of breathing are captured by means of respiratory belts, which measure changes in cross sectional area of the rib cage and the abdomen. Additionally, auditory and visual cues of breathing are recorded in

The corpus allows studying respiratory mechanisms underlying organisation of spontaneous communication, especially in connection with turn management. As such, it is a valuable resource both for fundamental research and speech techonology applications.
