Abstract

The investigation of conversational speech requires the close collaboration of linguists and speech technologists to develop new modeling techniques that allow the incorporation of various knowledge sources. This paper presents a progress report on the ongoing interdisciplinary project "Cross-layer language models for conversational speech" with a focus on the development of an annotation system for communicative functions. We discuss the requirements of such a system for the application in ASR as well as for the use in phonetic studies of talk-in-interaction, and illustrate emerging issues with the example of turn management.
