Abstract: Glottal stops can be used for various tasks in speech. This study provides an overview of the different contexts where glottal stops tend to occur in casual Finnish conversation. Glottal stops in four phonetically annotated dialogues are investigated. Preliminary findings are reported on the durations of glottal stops in the different conditions. The possible interactional functions of glottal stops are discussed.
