Language dynamics in social media

Animesh Mukherjee

SWS Colloquium
13 Dec 2018, 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Kaiserslautern building G26, room 113
simultaneous videocast to Saarbrücken building E1 5, room 105
In this talk I shall outline a summary of our five year long initiative studying the temporal dynamics of various human language-like entities over the social media. Some of the topics that I plan to cover are (a)  how opinion conflicts could be effectively used for incivility detection in Twitter [CSCW 2018], (b) how word borrowings can be automatically identified from social signals [EMNLP 2017] and (c)  how hashtags in Twitter form compounds like natural language words (e.g., #Wikipedia+#Blackout=#WikipediaBlackout) that become way more popular than the individual constituent hashtags [CSCW 2016, Honorable Mention].
