Abstract in Undetermined

Previous research of multimodal language processing have used visual information that was either explicitly or implicitly obligatory. This study investigates the use of optional visual information in a free dialogue task. The utterances were analyzed for the presence of deictic expressions, productivity, information content and effects of change over time. The main finding was that the presence of visual information increases the use of deictic expressions. The other measures were either not significant, or

played a very minor role. This suggests that optional visual information is referred to, but it may not change the content of a conversation.
