2001 Communicator Dialogue Act Tagged was produced by Linguistic Data
Consortium (LDC) catalog number LDC2004T16 and ISBN 1-58563-306-2.
This corpus is an addendum to the 2001 Communicator
Evaluation corpus produced by the LDC in 2003. This addendum contains
annotations on the transcriptions of the system and user
utterances as taken from the corrected logfiles of the 2001 Communicator
Evaluation corpus. Corrections were hand-done for missing or misaligned
time-stamps on turn/utterance boundaries.
Dialogue Act Annotations are provided for system utterances in
the dialogues. The dialogue act tags follow the DATE (Dialogue
Act Tagging for Evaluation) scheme. In addition, both
system and user utterances are tagged for named entities.
For further description of the 2001 Communicator Evaluation
corpus, please refer to the main publication from 2003 (LDC2003S01).
The complete Dialogue Act annotated corpus is available as a single XML text
file totalling approximately 67 MB.
The total number of dialogues is 1,683. There are 1,151,330 words (tokens) and 5,343,286 unique words.
Each dialogue is segmented into system and user turns. The total
number of turns for the entire corpus is 78,718 (39,419
system turns and 39,299 user turns). Turns were further
segmented into utterances in the system logfiles. The total
number of utterances is 89,666 (39,417 system utterances
and 50,249 user utterances). There are a total of 1,048,311
words in the system utterances and a total of 103,019 words
in the user utterances.
The total number of tagged dialogue
acts is 82,277 with 68 unique tags.
Dialogue Act tagging was done automatically using
pattern matching with human-labeled dialogue utterances used by the nine
different participating Communicator Systems. Named entity tagging
also followed the same methodology.
