Abstract

In this paper, we introduce a corpus of human-authored dialogue summaries collected through a web-experiment. The corpus features (i) one of the few existing corpora of written dialogue summaries; (ii) the only corpus available for dialogue summaries in Portuguese; and (iii) the only available corpus of summaries produced for dialogues whose participants’ politeness alignment was systematically varied. Comprising 1,808 human-authored summaries, produced by 452 summarisers, for four different dialogues, this is, to the best of our knowledge, the largest individual corpus available for dialogue summaries, with the highest number of participants involved.
