Abstract

This paper presents the DialogBank, a new language resource consisting of dialogues with gold standard annotations according to the ISO 24617-2 standard. Some of these dialogues have been taken from existing corpora and have been re-annotated, offering the possibility to compare annotations according to different schemes; others have been newly annotated directly according to the standard. The ISO standard annotations in the DialogBank make use of three alternative representation formats, which are shown to be interoperable. The (re-)annotation brought certain deficiencies and limitations of the ISO standard to light, which call for considering possible revisions and extensions, and for exploring the possible integration of dialogue act annotations with other semantic annotations.
