Abstract
In this paper we report on ongoing work on turn-taking in Project LISTEN's Reading Tutor (Mostow & Aist CALICO 1999). Project LISTEN's Reading Tutor listens to children read aloud and helps them learn to read. The Reading Tutor's repertoire of turn-taking behaviors includes not only alternating turns, but also backchanneling, interrupting, and prompting.
