Title Discourse Structure and Dialogue Acts in Multiparty Dialogue: the STAC Corpus
Authors Nicholas Asher, Julie Hunter, Mathieu Morey, Benamara Farah and Stergos Afantenos
Abstract This paper describes the STAC resource, a corpus of multi-party chats annotated for discourse structure in the style of SDRT (Asher and Lascarides, 2003; Lascarides and Asher, 2009). The main goal of the STAC project is to study the discourse structure of multi-party dialogues in order to understand the linguistic strategies adopted by interlocutors to achieve their conversational goals, especially when these goals are opposed. The STAC corpus is not only a rich source of data on strategic conversation, but also the first corpus that we are aware of that provides full discourse structures for multi-party dialogues. It has other remarkable features that make it an interesting resource for other topics: interleaved threads, creative language, and interactions between linguistic and extra-linguistic contexts.
Topics Discourse Annotation, Representation and Processing, Dialogue, Corpus (Creation, Annotation, etc.)
