Interview: A Large-Scale Open-Source Corpus of Media Dialog [article]

Bodhisattwa Prasad Majumder, Shuyang Li, Jianmo Ni, Julian McAuley
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We introduce 'Interview': a large-scale (105K conversations) media dialog dataset collected from news interview transcripts.  ...  Existing conversational datasets consist either of written proxies for dialog or small-scale transcriptions of natural speech.  ...  In this vein, we contribute an open-access large-scale corpus of cleanly annotated broadcast media dialog.  ...

"During the interview, the interpreter will provide a faithful translation." The potentials and pitfalls of researchinginterpreting in immigration, asylum, and police settings: methodology and research paradigms

Sonja Pöllabauer
2021 Linguistica Antverpiensia, New Series – Themes in Translation Studies  
This article presents a bibliometrical survey of an extensive corpus of research on interpreting in immigration, asylum andpolice settings.  ...  The corpus of relevant literature is grouped according to the authors' disciplinary background, and examined on the basis of a bibliometrical analysis with respect to the authors' affiliation, type(s)  ...  , which can be both quantitative (e.g. questionnaire surveys, large-scale structured interviews), or qualitative (e.g. participant observation, in-depth open interviews).  ...

A Computational Study of Commonsense Science: An Exploration in the Automated Analysis of Clinical Interview Data

Bruce Sherin
2013 The Journal of the Learning Sciences  
This coding of interview data can be seen as consisting of two steps: (1) the creation of a coding scheme and (2) the application of that coding scheme to the data corpus.  ...  For this exploration, I make use of a data corpus consisting of 21 clinical interviews in which middle school students were asked to explain the seasons.  ...  There have been prior applications of LSA to more open dialog, but that prior research has had concerns that differ greatly from that of the present work.  ...

Exploring the ontological dimension of dialogic education through an evaluation of the impact of Internet mediated dialogue across cultural difference

Rupert Wegerif, Jonathan Doney, Andrew Richards, Nasser Mansour, Shirley Larkin, Ian Jamison
2017 Learning, Culture and Social Interaction  
In order to do this a methodology for researching the impact of dialogic education is outlined and applied to the evaluation of the impact of a programme designed to promote greater dialogic open-mindedness  ...  The findings offer some clear evidence of a shift in identifications resulting from dialogue through the analysis of changes in online language use supported by interview evidence.  ...  The study as a whole tried to relate a robust large scale quantitative evaluation to interviews with participants in the programme illuminating the processes that lie behind the statistics.  ...

Interview: Large-scale Modeling of Media Dialog with Discourse Patterns and Knowledge Grounding

Bodhisattwa Prasad Majumder, Shuyang Li, Jianmo Ni, Julian McAuley
2020 Proceedings of the 2020 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing (EMNLP)   unpublished
We introduce I -a large-scale (105K conversations) media dialog dataset collected from news interview transcripts-which allows us to investigate such patterns at scale.  ...  In this work, we perform the first large-scale analysis of discourse in media dialog and its impact on generative modeling of dialog turns, with a focus on interrogative patterns and use of external knowledge  ...  Findings and observations are of the authors only, and do not necessarily reflect the views of the funding agency.  ...

The Role of Place-Lore in Environmental Conflict Discourse: The Case of Paluküla Sacred Hill in Estonia

Lona Päll
2021 Journal of Ethnology and Folkloristics  
Tracking references to previous place-lore about Paluküla Hill in the media coverage of the conflict allows a demonstration of how the contextuality and referentiality towards an extra-narrative environment  ...  Combining the frameworks of ecosemiotics, environmental communication studies, and place-lore research, the article explores how a new storytelling context, ideological selection, and the logic of conflict  ...  The media coverage was most intense in 2003-2005 when a large-scale ski resort plan was announced, and again in 2015 when there were discussions about the new management plan of the Kõnnumaa nature pro-tection  ...

Exploring the limits of single-iteration clarification dialogs

Jimmy Lin, Philip Wu, Dina Demner-Fushman, Eileen Abels
2006 Proceedings of the 29th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '06  
Single-iteration clarification dialogs, as implemented in the TREC HARD track, represent an attempt to introduce interaction into ad hoc retrieval, while preserving the many benefits of large-scale evaluations  ...  Our work can serve to inform the design of interactive systems that initiate user dialogs.  ...  Clarification dialogs represent an attempt to reduce both the scope and duration of user-system interactions to allow practical implementation in large-scale evaluations.  ...

Relevant Criteria for Selection of Spoken Data: Theory Meets Practice

Marie Kopřivová, Zuzana Komrsková, Petra Poukarová, David Lukeš
2019 Jazykovedný Časopis  
The primary goal is to survey the landscape of possible types of spoken language, so as to assess in which directions the coverage of spoken Czech offered by Czech National Corpus corpora can be expanded  ...  We then synthesize the obtained information into a pragmatically motivated set of SE classification criteria which does not aspire to be universal or definitive but aims to serve as a useful guiding principle  ...  Sociologists distinguish the following levels: speech directed towards one person, a small group of up to 19 people, a large group up to 39 people or a large group of addressees (the public) [33, p. 68  ...
