Out of the mouths of MPs: Speaker attribution in parliamentary debates

  • This paper presents GePaDeSpkAtt, a new corpus for speaker attribution in German parliamentary debates, with more than 7,700 manually annotated events of speech, thought and writing. Our role inventory includes the sources, addressees, messages and topics of the speech event and also two additional roles, medium and evidence. We report baseline results for the automatic prediction of speech events and their roles, with high scores for both, event triggers and roles. Then we apply our model to predict speech events in 20 years of parliamentary debates and investigate the use of factives in the rhetoric of MPs.
