Legitimacy of New Forms of Governance in Public Discourse - An Automated Media Content Analysis Approach Driven by Techniques of Computational Linguistics


Amsler, Michael; Wüest, Bruno (2016). Legitimacy of New Forms of Governance in Public Discourse - An Automated Media Content Analysis Approach Driven by Techniques of Computational Linguistics. In: PolText 2016. International Conference on the Advances in Computational Analysis of Political Text, Dubrovnik, 14 July 2016 - 16 July 2016, 1-7.

Abstract

For political scientists, it is increasingly important to explore large text collections without time-consuming human intervention. We are presenting a language technology tool kit that allows political scientists to extract information on various forms of governance from a comprehensive multilingual corpus. The tool kit allows searching for governance entities and measuring their salience, tonality and media frames. In substantial terms, our pipeline enables scholars of governance to extend their research focus to the previously neglected area of public communication.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
