Detecting Level of Belief in Chinese and Spanish

Juan Pablo Colomer, Keyu Lai, Owen Rambow


Abstract
There has been extensive work on detecting the level of committed belief (also known as “factuality”) that an author is expressing towards the propositions in his or her utterances. Previous work on English has revealed that this can be done as a sequence tagging task. In this paper, we investigate the same task for Chinese and Spanish, two very different languages from English and from each other.
