In this study, we describe the range of prosodic variation observed in two types of dialogue contexts, using fully automatic methods. The first type of context is that of speaker-changes, or transitions from only one participant speaking to only the other, involving either acoustic silences or acoustic overlaps. The second type of context is comprised of mutual silences or overlaps where a speaker change could in principle occur but does not. For lack of a better term, we will refer to these contexts as non-speaker-changes. More specifically, we investigate F0 patterns in the intervals immediately preceding overlaps and silences – in order to assess whether prosody before overlaps or silences may invite or inhibit speaker change.
