|Title: ||Priming of Syntactic Rules in Task-Oriented Dialogue and Spontaneous Conversation|
|Authors: ||Reitter, David|

|Abstract: ||Previous work provided corpus evidence for structural priming
for specific syntactic constructions. The present paper extends
these results by investigating priming effects involving arbitrary
syntactic rules in spoken dialogue corpora. We demonstrate
the existence of within- and between-speaker priming in
both spontaneous conversation (the Switchboard corpus) and
task-oriented dialogue (the Map Task corpus). We also find
that between-speaker priming is stronger in the Map Task corpus.
This supports the hypothesis that in task-oriented dialog,
low-level priming is linked to higher-level alignment of situation
