What Changed Your Mind: The Roles of Dynamic Topics and Discourse in Argumentation Process [article]

Jichuan Zeng, Jing Li, Yulan He, Cuiyun Gao, Michael R. Lyu, Irwin King
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Specifically, we propose a novel neural model that is able to dynamically track the changes of latent topics and discourse in argumentative conversations, allowing the investigation of their roles in influencing  ...  We further analyze the effects of topics and discourse on persuasiveness, and find that they are both useful - topics provide concrete evidence while superior discourse styles may bias participants, especially  ...  In this line, previous studies have shown the benefits of discovering the latent discourse structure.  ...

Entropy Converges Between Dialogue Participants: Explanations from an Information-Theoretic Perspective

Yang Xu, David Reitter
2016 Proceedings of the 54th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (Volume 1: Long Papers)  
Speaker's dynamic roles as topic initiators and topic responders are associated with decreasing and increasing entropy, respectively, which results in local convergence between these speakers in each topic  ...  The principle is found to hold; however, new entropy change patterns within the topic episodes of dialogue are described, which are different from written text.  ...  Acknowledgments This work has been funded by the National Science Foundation under CRII IIS grant 1459300.  ...

A Discourse-oriented Model for Analysing Power and Politeness in Negotiation Interaction: A Cross-linguistic Perspective

Shamala Paramasivam
2007 Journal of Universal Language  
Together, the theoretical framework and the method for analysis form a microscope that facilitates a discourse analysis of power and politeness in negotiation talk.  ...  The model forwards a theoretical framework as well as a method for analysis that enables the identification and delineation of power practices in negotiation discourse.  ...  action with regard to who spoke, with whom, how, for what reasons and with what effects.  ...

Engagement Patterns of Peer-to-Peer Interactions on Mental Health Platforms [article]

Ashish Sharma, Monojit Choudhury, Tim Althoff, Amit Sharma
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Such back-and-forth interactions, in turn, are associated with early response times and the sentiment of posts.  ...  Our understanding of engagement patterns on mental health platforms is limited but critical to inform the role, limitations, and design of these platforms.  ...  Tim Althoff was funded in part by NSF grant IIS-1901386 and the Allen Institute Institute for Artificial Intelligence.  ...

Conversation after right hemisphere brain damage: Motivations for applying conversation analysis

Scott Barnes, Elizabeth Armstrong
2009 Clinical Linguistics & Phonetics  
In recent years, researchers have begun applying Conversation Analysis (CA) to the everyday talk of people with aphasia.  ...  In particular, this paper will review and discuss previous investigations of conversation after RHBD, and put forward arguments relating to how CA might be applied to talk-in-interaction involving people  ...  as controls to enact changes to discourse structure.  ...

ROLES AND REGISTERS IN DIGITAL FORUM INTERACTION: DEVELOPING A COMMUNICATIVE IDENTITY-BASED APPROACH TO REGISTER VARIATION

ROSA GIMÉNEZ MORENO, JUAN JOSÉ MARTÍNEZ SIERRA
2017 RLA. Revista de Lingüística Teórica y Aplicada  
The study substantiates the close connection between relational identities or roles and registers in digital discourse, and facilitates linguistic devices for a better use and understanding of register  ...  The way they function in digital discourse is illustrated in the second part by analysing an open discussion forum sample corpus.  ...  In contentbased filtering, we solve the problem of data scarcity in online content by smoothing, using latent topic information.  ...

ALEXANDRA FILIPOVA
2019 Society Register  
The topic of children's participation in various issues was updated in the second half of the last century.  ...  Russian society is dominated by the traditional discourse of the perception of children as human becoming, socially and mentally immature, not-yet-an-adult.  ...  Discourse reproduces the society through social structures of the latter, relations and value structures.  ...

Mother-Child Conversations and Child Memory Narratives: The Roles of Child Gender and Attachment

Kimberly R. Kelly
2016 Psychology of Language and Communication  
We argue that mothers of secure boys sensitively recognize their sons' cues within the conversational context and respond to the need for further verbal assistance, thus providing more on-topic replies  ...  This study examined the roles of child gender and attachment in mother-child narrative conversations and child independent narratives.  ...  Structure that adults provide may also be in the form of questions, praise, repetition of the child's content, and on-topic replies that adhere to Grice's (1975) conversational maxims.  ...

The Pursuit of Power and Its Manifestation in Written Dialog

Swabha Swayamdipta, Owen Rambow
2012 2012 IEEE Sixth International Conference on Semantic Computing  
Our approach relies on the identification of certain discourse structures and linguistic techniques used by participants in the discussion. We achive an F-measure of 69.5% using unsupervised methods.  ...  In this paper we explore the written dialog behavior of participants in an online discussion for automatic identification of participants who pursue power within the discussion group.  ...  We would also like to thank all of our colleagues on the SCIL project for providing an exciting intellectual environment in which to develop the ideas presented in this paper.  ...

Iulian Vlad Serban, Tim Klinger, Gerald Tesauro, Kartik Talamadupula, Bowen Zhou, Yoshua Bengio, Aaron Courville
2016 arXiv   pre-print
We apply the proposed model to the task of dialogue response generation in two challenging domains: the Ubuntu technical support domain, and Twitter conversations.  ...  Finally, our experiments demonstrate that the proposed model is more adept at overcoming the sparsity of natural language and is better able to capture long-term structure.  ...  The authors thank Orhan Firat and Caglar Gulcehre for constructive feedback, and thank Ryan Lowe, Nissan Pow and Joelle Pineau for making the Ubuntu Dialogue Corpus available to the public.  ...
