Abstract

Recent advances in automated analysis of on-line chat data allow us to draw conclusions about social behavior, such as leadership, in small groups previously possible only through manual methods of observation and analysis. We have applied such methods to comparable English and Chinese language data, defined a new language use called Tension Focus, and demonstrate its different effects in the data in these two languages.
