Analyzing Structure of Multiparty Interaction: Group Size Effect in Story-Retelling Task
This paper examines the differences in verbal and nonverbal behaviors between different group sizes, specifically two-party and three-party interactions. An experiment was conducted using a story-retelling task. The interaction data were recorded with a video camera. Speech, gaze, and gesture data in both group sizes were analyzed. The results suggest that participants in three-party interaction change speakers more frequently by turning their gaze to each other than do those in two-party interaction.
