Crosslinguistic Disfluency Modeling: A Comparative Analysis of Swedish and Tok Pisin Human-Human ATIS Dialogues
Telia Research AB, Farsta, Sweden, and
This paper studies disfluencies in authentic human–human
dialogues in Swedish and Tok Pisin. It is found that while there
are no major differences as to types or frequencies on a macro
level, there are dissimilarities on a micro level, notably in the
characteristics of how prolonged segments are realized. The
paper also discusses the results in the light of reported
disfluencies in English, German, Ilokano and Tagalog.
