The speakers were examiner and candidates who took turns in IELTS speaking practice. The speaking practices were videotaped and transcribed to allow the analysis of speakers’ turn signals through gesture, verbal and nonverbal cues.

These turn signals were used by the examiner and candidates as indications of holding, yielding, taking, claiming and suppressing the speaking turns.
