We present an acoustic analysis of politeness and efficiency in a cooperative time-sensitive task experiment. In the experiment sixteen dyads completed 20 trials of the ``Maze Task'', where one participant (the navigator) gave oral instructions for the other (the pilot) to follow. For half of the trials, navigators were instructed to be polite, and for the other half to be efficient. We investigate what are the main acoustic factors that are associated with greater politeness in the polite condition and lesser politeness in the efficient condition.
