This paper presents a pilot comparative study of feedback head movements and voc expressions in Danish and Polish naturallocurring video recorded conversations. The conversations involve three well-acquainted participants who talk freely in their homes while eating and drinking. The analysis of the data indicates that the participants use the same types of head and spoken feedback in the two languages. However; the Polish participants express more often feedback multimodally; that is through the two modalities; and they use more repeated multimodal feedback expressions than the Danish participants. Moreover; we found a stronger relation between repeated head movements and repeated speech tokens in the Polish data than in the Danish one. Our data also confirms that there is a correlation between familiarity and feed- back frequency and familiarity and repetitive- ness of feedback expressions as suggested in preceding studies (Boholm and Allwood 2010; Navarretta and Paggio 2012).
