Summary of the paper

Title DramaBank: Annotating Agency in Narrative Discourse
Authors David Elson
Abstract We describe the Story Intention Graph, a set of discourse relations designed to represent aspects of narrative. Compared to prior models, ours is a novel synthesis of the notions of goal, plan, intention, outcome, affect and time that is amenable to corpus annotation. We describe a collection project, DramaBank, which includes encodings of texts ranging from small fables to epic poetry and contemporary nonfiction.
Topics Discourse annotation, representation and processing, Corpus (creation, annotation, etc.), Authoring tools, proofing
