Very short utterances and timing in turn-taking

This work explores the timing of very short utterances in conversations, as well as the effects of excluding intervals adjacent to such utterances from distributions of between-speaker interval durations. The results show that very short utterances are more precisely timed to the preceding utterance than longer utterances in terms of a smaller variance and a larger proportion of no-gap-no-overlaps. Excluding intervals adjacent to very short utterances furthermore results in measures of central tendency closer to zero (i.e. no-gap-no-overlaps) as well as larger variance (i.e. relatively longer gaps and overlaps).
