Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this thesis is to propose swiveling behavior as a potential speech transitioning device and to discuss the methodology behind qualitative and quantitative analysis of swivels in relation to subjects’ partners. Due to the impacts of gaze and body orientation direction on speech transitioning, it is deduced that, if swiveling behaviors generally impact people’s inclinations for head and gaze orientation, then swiveling may, too, serve as regulatory behaviors in conversation. Swivels are categorized based on the direction of their motion and the joints involved. A methodology for determining the direction and angle at which swivels cause changes in body orientation is also proposed to facilitate the study of swivels. Lastly, the utility of swivel analysis is discussed, including several confounding variables to alter individuals’ swiveling behaviors.
