Description: Poster B16, CUNY 2020 Short abstract: When describing a scene, a speaker must decide what to talk about and in what order. We recorded eye movements and speech as speakers described scenes and asked whether scene properties (meaning and image salience) influenced linearization of descriptions and fixations. We found that more meaningful objects were fixated earlier. We did not find evidence for such a relationship between the order in which objects were mentioned and how meaningful they were. Image salience did not predict the order of either fixated or described objects. The results suggest a dissociation between how descriptions and fixations are linearized.
