Abstract

A crucial feature of spoken interaction is joint activity at various linguistic and phonetic levels that requires fine-tuned coordination. This study gives a brief overview on how laughing in conversational speech can be phonetically analysed as partner-specific adaptation and joint vocal action. Laughter as a feature of social bonding leads to the assumption that when laughter appears in dialogues it is performed by both interlocutors. One possible type of convergence is when the conversational partners adapt their amount of laughter during their interaction.
