Abstract
Referring to objects using multimodal deictic expressions is an important form of communication. This work addresses the question on how content is distributed between the modalities speech and gesture by comparing deictic pointing gestures to objects with and without speech. As a result, two main strategies used by participants to adapt their gestures to the condition were identified. This knowledge can be used, e.g., to improve the naturalness of pointing gestures employed by embodied conversational agents.
