Priming of Syntactic Rules in Task-Oriented Dialogue and Spontaneous Conversation

  title={Priming of Syntactic Rules in Task-Oriented Dialogue and Spontaneous Conversation},
  author={David Reitter and Johanna D. Moore and Frank Keller},
Previous work provided corpus evidence for structural priming for specific syntactic constructions. The present paper extends these results by investigating priming effects involving arbitrary syntactic rules in spoken dialogue corpora. We demonstrate the existence of withinand between-speaker priming in both spontaneous conversation (the Switchboard corpus) and task-oriented dialogue (the Map Task corpus). We also find that between-speaker priming is stronger in the Map Task corpus. This… CONTINUE READING
