Visual analysis of stance markers in online social media

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

Stance in human communication is a linguistic concept relating to expressions of subjectivity such as the speakers' attitudes and emotions. Taking stance is crucial for the social construction of meaning and can be useful for many application fields such as business intelligence, security analytics, or social media monitoring. In order to process large amounts of text data for stance analyses, linguists need interactive tools to explore the textual sources as well as the results of computational linguistics techniques. Both aspects are important for refining the analyses iteratively. In this work, we present a visual analytics tool for online social media text data and corresponding time-series that can be used to investigate stance phenomena and to refine the so-called stance markers collection.
