We built our method on two approaches to corpus creation: iterative enhancement (IE) which aims to improve the annotation in several iterations using automatic techniques to look for inconsistencies in the manual annotation, and agile corpus creation (ACC) which replaces the traditional, linear-phase approach with a cyclic and iterative small-step process. The layers in our approach can be viewed as such iterative cycles which aim to improve the result of the annotation, however, our process is also adapted to handle time-constraint and the annotation of complex linguistic phenomena (dialogical argumentation) where (semi-)automatic methods such as IE cannot be successfully applied. Moreover, the full multi-layer annotation process was iterated three times which allowed us to not only improve the corpus as in ACC, but also to improve the annotation process itself.
