I try to use nps_chat corpora provided by nltk library. I follow the example given here. In particular, I can reproduce this results:
>>> from nltk.corpus import nps_chat >>> chatroom = nps_chat.posts('10-19-20s_706posts.xml') >>> chatroom ['i', 'do', "n't", 'want', 'hot', 'pics', 'of', 'a', 'female', ',', 'I', 'can', 'look', 'in', 'a', 'mirror', '.']
However, I cannot figure out who says what. I mean, I do see posts (messages) but I do not know who is the author. Is it possible to determine the author? Of course I do understand that the real author cannot be given but is there anonymized authorship? If it is the case, can I find somewhere dialog corpora with authorship?
