Title Ubuntu-fr: A Large and Open Corpus for Multi-modal Analysis of Online Written Conversations
Authors Nicolas Hernandez, Soufian Salim and Elizaveta Loginova Clouet
Abstract "We present a large, free, French corpus of online written conversations extracted from the Ubuntu platform's forums, mailing lists and IRC channels. The corpus is meant to support multi-modality and diachronic studies of online written conversations. We choose to build the corpus around a robust metadata model based upon strong principles, such as the ""stand off"" annotation principle. We detail the model, we explain how the data was collected and processed - in terms of meta-data, text and conversation - and we detail the corpus'contents through a series of meaningful statistics. A portion of the corpus - about 4,700 sentences from emails, forum posts and chat messages sent in November 2014 - is annotated in terms of dialogue acts and sentiment. We discuss how we adapted our dialogue act taxonomy from the DIT++ annotation scheme and how the data was annotated, before presenting our results as well as a brief qualitative analysis of the annotated data."
Topics Corpus (Creation, Annotation, etc.), Discourse Annotation, Representation and Processing, Dialogue
