Use case: conversation analysis

We study the ways in which persons in a multi-party discussion expresses
their views, opinions and attittudes. We are particularly interested in
how the conversational moves contribute to the discussion, the way an
argument is settled, how a person is persuaded both with reason and
rhetoric. We collect corpora of multi-party discussions and annotates
these on all kinds of dimensions, one of them being a "mental state"
layer in which we tries to describe the attitudes that participants
express with respect to what is being said and their emotional reactions
to it. This layer includes elements such as: surprise, scepticism,
anger, amusement, enthusiasm.
We studies how these mental states are expressed and the functions of
these expressions within the conversation.


* A way to describe the dynamics (start, on-set, off-set, end) of the
state. Can we distinguish different phases?
* A way to say what a label is refering to (to the expression, to the
mental state experienced, the mental state signaled).
* A broad set of categories.
