feature is the capacity for incremental learning and forgetting. To showcase its flexibility, we design experiments answering four concrete questions about the systematics of spoken interaction. The results show that: (1) individuals are clearly affected by one another; (2) there is individual variation in interaction strategy; (3) strategies wander in time rather than converge; and (4) individuals exhibit similarity with their interlocutors. We expect the proposed framework to be capable of answering many such questions with little additional effort.
