Abstract [en]

The Active Listening Corpus (ALICO) is a multimodal data set of spontaneous dyadic conversations in German with diverse speech and gestural annotations of both dialogue partners. The annotations consist of short feedback expression transcriptions with corresponding communicative function interpretations as well as segmentations of interpausal units, words, rhythmic prominence intervals and vowel-to-vowel intervals. Additionally, ALICO contains head gesture annotations of both interlocutors. The corpus contributes to research on spontaneous human–human interaction, on functional relations between modalities, and timing variability in dialogue. It also provides data that differentiates between distracted and attentive listeners. We describe the main characteristics of the corpus and briefly present the most important results obtained from analyses in recent years.
