1.1 Sub-corpora

Based on the annotation of the languages per chat, different sub-corpora were created.

The following basic considerations were applied when creating the sub-corpora:

Definitions for sub-corpora

  • Each chat was to be assigned to only one language-sub-corpus.
  • Additionally, we differentiate between chats where we have demographic information for all participants and those where we do not. In the former case, the sub-corpus gets the extension _DEMOG.
  • Where additional tasks were performed on individual chats (e.g. normalization or part-of-speech tagging) we created additional sub-corpora per language.

Main sub-corpora

  • WUS: All data, i.e. the whole corpus
  • WUS_DEU: All data where non-dialectal German provides the most messages
  • WUS_DEU_DEMOG: A subgroup thereof where we have demographic information from all communication partners.
  • WUS_FRA: All data where French provides the most messages
  • WUS_FRA_DEMOG: A subgroup thereof where we have demographic information from all communication partners.
  • WUS_GSW: All data where dialectal German provides the most messages
  • WUS_GSW_DEMOG: A subgroup thereof where we have demographic information from all communication partners.
  • WUS_ITA: All data where Italian provides the most messages
  • WUS_ITA_DEMOG: A subgroup thereof where we have demographic information from all communication partners.
  • WUS_ROH: All data where Romansh provides the most messages
  • WUS_ROH_DEMOG: A subgroup thereof where we have demographic information from all communication partners.

Smaller corpora

Next to these main sub-corpora, there are some smaller sub-corpora:
