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.
