In this paper, we describe a novel approach to computational modeling and understanding of social and cultural phenomena in multi-party dialogues. We developed a two-tier approach in which we first detect and classify certain social language uses, including topic control, disagreement, and involvement, that serve as first order models from which presence the higher level social constructs such as leadership, may be inferred.
