Event details

I am me, and you are you, but when we talk to each other we sometimes act as a team: we complete each other's sentences, say the same thing at the same time, and imitate aspects of each other's voice, posture or hand movement. How is it that we achieve these synchronisations in talk? Find out in this interactive (and interactional!) exhibition with researchers from the University of York’s Department of Language and Linguistic Science

Meet the Researcher: Department of Language and Linguistic Science, Marina Cantarutti
