Gaze Cues in face-to-face interactions
- Speakers‘ direct their gaze toward an object approximately 800ms before mentioning. (Griffin & Bock, 2000)
- Previous studies showed that listeners utilize speakers‘ gaze to form predictions about the unfolding sentence. (Jachmann et al., 2017)
- Do listeners utilize this external cue to validate expectations about the unfolding sentence? And, if so, how does this effect the comprehension of the noun?
