Alignment in aufgabenorientierten Dialogen: ein multimodales Such- und Vergleichs-Korpus
We present the rationale and the procedures of a corpus-based study designed to extend the 'interactive alignment' theory of conversation (which posits that automatic convergence of representations within and between interlocutors captures a significant aspect of dialogue structure) to mediated communication. The corpus is multimodal in that natural dialogue is supplemented by interlocutors' eye movement data plus audio and video footage. Findings from ongoing analyses suggest that local alignment (as indicated by unsolicited repetitions, collaborative completions, joint attention, etc.) is a prominent feature of dialogue tactics while global alignment (as indicated by long-term consolidation of discourse structure) merely is to be regarded as one among several dialogue strategies.

More about this publication?
- "Linguistische Berichte" is open-minded regarding linguistic subjects and methods, but attaches great importance to theoretical reasoning and empirical validation.
Since its foundation in 1969 by Peter Hartmann and Arnim von Stechow, the journal is an academic forum where serious views within linguistics and similar fields of studies (psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, language acquisition and teaching, literary studies, philosophy, and computer linguistics) are discussed equally.
The purpose is to provide an objective and critical documentation of linguistic developments. Besides, the forum is open for each level of scientific work, i.e. for everyone who is dealing with linguistic-based work (undergraduates, assistants, and professors).
New research results and linguistic developments are published quickly and comprehensively, and contributions are normally published within one year after acceptance by the editors.
