The influence of emotion on (the early stages of) speech production processes, notably content selection has received little scholarly attention. Goudbeek & Krahmer (2012) found evidence for alignment at the conceptual level: speakers may start using a dispreferred attribute over a preferred attribute in their referring expressions when they are primed by a pre-recorded female voice in a preceding interaction. The current study aimed to assess the role of emotion (using amusement and disgust) in alignment, while simultaneously replicating this finding in a more naturalistic setting involving two human participants in naturalistic dialogue. Our results replicate the findings by Goudbeek & Krahmer (2012), generalizing their findings to a much more naturalistic setting. In addition, we found that amused, but not disgusted speakers tend to use the preferred attribute more to describe objects to their conversational partner.
