Research content
The theme in this class is the human communication mechanism which is constructed by utterances, eye-gazes, gestures, and facial expressions. People can exchange utterances one after another in spite of the order of speaker undecided. People can utter appropriate next turn. The reason is that people follow many implicit rules of conversation. We verify the rules are actually practiced through real conversation data.
