Abstract

Previous work on social power modelling from linguistic cues has
been limited by the range of available data. We introduce a new corpus of dialogues,
elicited in a controlled experimental setting where participant roles were
manipulated to generate a perceived difference in social power. Initial results
demonstrate successful differentiation of upwards, downwards, and level communications, using a classifier built on a small set of stylistic features.
