This paper discusses a variety of types of non-lexical signals
such as beeps, prosodic variation and speaker style changes, and
we consider four cases in which such signals might be used to
good effect. We discuss the results of user tests to determine if
specific types of non-lexical signals are better in some situations
than in others, and we discuss the advantages and disadvantages
of using such signals.
