Abstract: In this paper we describe a design approach for an Artificial Conversational Companion according to earlier identified requirements of utility, adaptivity, conversational capabilities and long-term interaction. The Companion is aimed to help advanced learners of a foreign language to practice conversation via instant messenger dialogues. In order to model a meaningful long-term interaction with an Artificial Conversational Companion for this application case, it is necessary to understand how natural long-term interaction via chat between human language experts and language learners works. For this purpose, we created a corpus from instant messenger-based interactions between native speakers of German and advanced learners of German as a foreign language. We used methods from conversation analysis to identify rules of interaction. Examples from our data set are used to illustrate how particular requirements for the agent can be fulfilled. Finally, we outline how the identified pattern s of interaction can be used for the design of an Artificial Conversational Companion. (More)
