Summary of the paper

Title Annotating Agreement and Disagreement in Threaded Discussion
Authors Jacob Andreas, Sara Rosenthal and Kathleen McKeown
Abstract We introduce a new corpus of sentence-level agreement and disagreement annotations over LiveJournal and Wikipedia threads. This is the first agreement corpus to offer full-document annotations for threaded discussions. We provide a methodology for coding responses as well as an implemented tool with an interface that facilitates annotation of a specific response while viewing the full context of the thread. Both the results of an annotator questionnaire and high inter-annotator agreement statistics indicate that the annotations collected are of high quality.
Topics Corpus (creation, annotation, etc.), Discourse annotation, representation and processing, Tools, systems, applications
