QuaDramA – Quantitative Drama Analytics – is a research project we currently conduct at Stuttgart University. The aim of the project is the development of new methods to analyse dramatic texts and the investigation of drama-historic developments using these new methods. The core idea of QuaDramA is the complementation of analysing structural information (e.g., acts and scenes) with an NLP-supported analysis of the figure speech.

We have recently started to annotate coreference chains in dramatic texts. In this loose series of blog posts, we will discuss interesting findings and examples. This post revisits the annotation tool question – again.
