Speaker and paralinguistic properties of dialogue speech that affect the timing at turn changes are investigated by analyzing the UU Database for Paralinguistic Information Studies. The results showed a large variation among speakers and a strong interaction with partner in pause/overlap duration. In addition, perceived emotional states of utterances had significant effects on the pause/overlap duration.
