SP3 Annotation Tools: From Speech Segments To Dialogues

Abstract

We present a method of enhancing dialogue markup by mapping HPSG-based discourse category information into XML. The application scenario is crisis talk, specifically cockpit voice recording (CVR) transcripts of aviation disasters. This approach is new both as a source of richly annotated spoken language corpus resources for a little known scenario, and in grammatical theory and language documentation.
