On the Semantics and Pragmatics of Dysfluency

By Jonathan Ginzburg, Raquel Fernández and David Schlangen


International audienceAlthough dysfluent speech is pervasive in spoken conversation , dysfluencies have received little attention within formal theories of dialogue. The majority of work on dysfluent language has come from psy-cholinguistic models of speech production and comprehension (e.g. [10, 3, 1]) and from structural approaches designed to improve performance in speech applications (e.g. [14, 8]). In this paper, we present a detailed formal account which: (a) unifies dysfluencies (self-repair) with Clarification Requests (CRs), without conflating them, (b) offers a precise explication of the roles of all key components of a dysfluency, including editing phrases and filled pauses, (c) accounts for the possibility of self-addressed questions in a dysfluency
