[Abstract] The paper deals with the phenonemon of pauses hesitation and their different aspects. People hesitate in speech due to several reasons which are not always obvious, so there is an insight into the speech production stage which is needed. Sometimes while speaking we hestitate and meanwhile produce different kinetic forms of behaviour (gestures, postures, facial expressions, body movements, head movements). At the same time those stretches of speech are charged with prosodic information of specific kind. Thus, those three aspects of hesitation and their coexistence are in the focus: cognitive, gestural and prosodic.
