We describe acoustic/prosodic and lexical correlates of social variables annotated on a large corpus of task-oriented spontaneous speech. We employ Amazon Mechanical Turk to label the corpus with a large number of social behaviors, examining results of three of these here. We find significant differences between male and female speakers for perceptions of attempts to be liked, likeability, speech planning, that also differ depending upon the gender of their conversational partners.
