This paper presents studies of multimodal turn management in a Danish corpus of video recorded conversations between two young people who meet for the first time. More specifically; we investigate multi-modal behaviours by which the conversation participants indicate whether they wish to give; take or keep the turn. In this study we present quantitative analyses of such cues; as well as an investigation of the length of the individual participants’ speech contributions. The quantitative studies comprise body behaviours which have not been previously investigated with respect to turn management; so that it not only confirms preceding studies on turn management in English but also provides new insight on how speech and body behaviours are used synchronously in communication. The investigation of the participants’ vocal contributions shows gender differences in that male participants talked more when interacting with a female than they did when their inter- locutor was a male; while female participants talked more when interacting with a female than when they interacted with a male.
