Recent studies of dyadic interaction have examined phenomena of synchronization, entrainment, alignment, and convergence. All these forms of behavioral matching have been hypothesized to play a… Expand
Argument disrupts interpersonal synchrony
Research on interpersonal convergence and synchrony characterizes the way in which interacting individuals come to have more similar affect, behaviour, and cognition over time. Although its dynamics… Expand
An exploratory analysis of emotion dynamics between mothers and adolescents during conflict discussions.
Dynamic patterns of influence between parents and children have long been considered key to understanding family relationships. Despite this, most observational research on emotion in parent-child… Expand
Interpersonal Movement Synchrony Responds to High- and Low-Level Conversational Constraints
Much work on communication and joint action conceptualizes interaction as a dynamical system. Under this view, dynamic properties of interaction should be shaped by the context in which the… Expand

We show that large-scale human entrainment may hold across a number of distinct scales, in an exquisitely time-locked fashion. Expand
Alignment, Transactive Memory, and Collective Cognitive Systems
Research on linguistic interaction suggests that two or more individuals can sometimes form adaptive and cohesive systems. We describe an “alignment system” as a loosely interconnected set of… Expand

Linguistic alignment (LA) is the tendency during a conversation to reuse each other's linguistic expressions, including lexical, conceptual, or syntactic structures. Expand
Leveraging Linguistic Content and Debater Traits to Predict Debate Outcomes
