Discourse learning: Dialogue Act Tagging with Transformation-Based Learning

Ken Samuel

My central goal is to compute dialogue acts automatically. A dialogue act is a concise abstraction of a speaker’s intention, such as SUGGEST and REQUEST. Recognizing dialogue acts is critical to understanding at the discourse level, and dialogue acts can also be useful for other applications, such as resolving ambiguity in speech recognition. But, often, a dialogue act cannot be directly inferred from a literal reading of an utterance.
