The paper reports on a multimodal analysis of short positive and negative responses in a corpus of Polish task-oriented dialogues. In the present task, responses most frequently functioned as realisations of affirmative and negative feedback and confirmation/disconfirmation. We describe prosodic and visual cues, namely intonation, head movement and smile that may distinguish between the main dialogue act functions in the studied corpus. Integrating our findings, we present a preliminary multimodal picture of this class of dialogue contributions in Polish.
