English Speed Networking Conversational Transcripts LDC2016T16

English Speed Networking Conversational Transcripts was developed at the University of the West of England and contains 388 transcripts of English face-to-face and instant messaging conversations about business ideas collected in 2014 and 2015 from participants (undergraduate students) playing different power roles. This corpus was created to examine communication accommodation, specifically, the ways in which an individual's linguistic style, or how an individual communicates, is affected by social power and personality. The data was collected in two studies. In the first study, 40 participants had a series of paired five minute face-to-face conversations playing either a high, low or neutral power role. The same procedure was followed in the second study except that participants discussed business ideas via instant messaging.
