ELDA and INSA Rouen Normandie partner to release the Annotated tweet corpus in Arabizi, French and English

ELDA and INSA Rouen Normandie are pleased to announce the release of the Annotated tweet corpus in Arabizi, French and English. This corpus was built by ELDA on behalf of INSA Rouen Normandie (Normandie Université, LITIS team), in the framework of the SAPhIRS project (System for the Analysis of Information Propagation in Social Networks), funded by the DGE (Direction Générale des Entreprises, France) through the RAPID programme (2017-2020). This project aimed at studying the mechanisms of information and opinion propagation within social networks: identifying influential leaders, detecting channels for disseminating information and opinion. The purpose of the corpus constitution, completed in 2020, was to collect and annotate tweets in 3 languages (Arabizi, French and English) for 3 predefined themes (Hooliganism, Racism, Terrorism).

The annotated tweet corpus in Arabizi, French and English can be found in the ELRA Catalogue under the following links and references:
