Dialogue Grammar Induction

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper presents a foundation for inducing formal dialogue games from analysed transcripts of real, inter-human conversations. We describe the DI-Algorithm (Dialogue Induction Algorithm), that accepts as input transcripts analysed using the Argument Interchange Format (AIF) enriched with Inference Anchoring Theory (IAT), from which it induces a formal, context-free grammar. This grammar describes the dialogue protocol that was followed in order to generate the original transcript. To illustrate the DI-Algorithm’s application, we provide a worked example based on an AIF analysis of a mock conversation.
