The jury in the murder trial of Gable Tostee has emerged from deliberations to ask the judge whether language constitutes as force.
They are currently in their third day of deliberations after previously stating they were struggling to reach a unanimous verdict.
The six men and six women jurors have been deliberating since early Monday afternoon on whether Tostee murdered his New Zealand Tinder date Warriena Wright in August 2014.
In response to their question today, Justice John Byrne told them to only be concerned with physical force when assessing reasonableness of response.
Justice Byrne allowed the jury to go home overnight and return this morning at 9.30am (Brisbane time) to continue their deliberations.
Yesterday the jurors asked the judge several questions during their almost eight hours of deliberations.
In the first note, they asked what Tostee's age at the time of the alleged offence was, if they should consider how drunk Ms Wright was, and the nature of an item in Tostee's hand seen on CCTV footage after she died.
The second note asked two more questions relating to a home owner's right to remove a disorderly person from their apartment.
Tostee is not alleged to have pushed or thrown Ms Wright from his 14th floor balcony but intimidated her so greatly, she felt climbing over the railing was the only way to escape from him.
The jury are asked to find him guilty of murder or the lesser charge of manslaughter.
