The computational tool

The C-ORAL-ROM corpus is tagged with XML. Using the information included in the tags, we developed a program which automatically calculate the frequency of occurrence of each of the following features: overlapping, retracting, number of dialogic turns, speaking speed, fragmented words and supports. These frequencies were calculated for each class of texts.

Thus, the results show the average number of words between two occurrences of a phenomenon, except in the case of speaking speed, where the figures correspond to the number of words per second. The higher the number of words, the less important is the phenomenon in the class of text in question. In order to facilitate the reading of the figures, only one decimal was used in the final results.
