20 June 2022, participation in ParlaCLARIN III at LREC2022 – Workshop on Creating, Enriching and Using Parliamentary Corpora, in Marseille, France
On 20th June 2022, the ParlaCLARIN III Workshop on Creating, Enriching and Using Parliamentary Corpora took place within the 13th Edition of the Language Resources and Evaluation Conference (LREC) in Marseille, France. The research team was represented by Petru Rebeja, Mădălina Chitez, Roxana Rogobete, Andreea Dincă and Loredana Bercuci, who presented the work ParlaMint-RO: Chamber of the Eternal Future.
The paper describes the ParlaMint-RO corpus of parliamentary debates in Romania. It analyses several trends in parliamentary debates (plenary sessions of the Lower House) held between 2000 and 2020. We offer a short description of the data collection, the workflow of data processing (text extraction, conversion, encoding, linguistic annotation), and an overview of the corpus. The paper then moves on to a multi-layered linguistic analysis, which offers an interdisciplinary perspective. We use computational methods and corpus linguistics approaches to scrutinize the future tense forms used by Romanian speakers in order to create a data-supported profile of the parliamentary group strategies and planning.
