Webis-ArgQuality-20 Corpus

The Webis-ArgQuality-20 corpus consists of two sets of data: a processed version, where for each annotated argument, a scalar value for each argument quality dimension is derived; and the raw annotation data, providing the individual paired comparison labels. The structure of both datasets is described below.

Processed Data

The dataset is split into three different tables. Each key represents a column name, with details about the contained data in the explanation field. Primary keys are marked in bold. If a combined key is used, all entries that the combined key is composed of are marked. Foreign keys that can be used to reference other tables are marked in italics.

Argument Dataset
Key Explanation
Topic ID Unique identifier for the topic context the item was judged in
Argument ID Unique identifier for the item in regards to the discussion it is part of
Discussion ID Unique identifier of the discussion the item is part of
Is Argument? Boolean value, indicating wether the item is an argument, or not
Stance Denotes the stance of the item, can be Pro, Con or Not specified
Relevance Relevance score, z-normalised
Logical Quality Logical quality score, z-normalised
Rhetorical Quality Rhetorical quality score, z-normalised
Dialectical Quality Dialectical quality score, z-normalised
Combined Quality Combined quality score, z-normalised
Premise Text of the items' premise
Text Length Word Count of the premise
Ranking Dataset
Key Explanation
Topic ID Unique identifier for the topic context
Model Name of the model the ranking this entry stems from was obtained with
Rank The rank of the argument in the respective engines ranking
Argument ID Unique identifier for the argument in regards to the discussion it is part of
Discussion ID Unique identifier of the discussion the argument is part of
Topic Dataset
Key Explanation
Topic ID Unique identifier for the topic
Category Thematical category the topic belongs to
Long Query Long query, used as input for the retrieval models
Short Query Shortened form of the query

Raw Data

Individual comparisons for argument quality are given in a dedicated table each. Relevance annotations are included as well. Each key represents a column name, with details about the contained data in the explanation field. Primary keys are marked in bold. If a combined key is used, all entries that the combined key is composed of are marked. Foreign keys that can be used to reference other tables are marked in italics.

Quality Annotations
Key Explanation
Argument ID A Unique identifier for argument A in regards to the discussion it is part of
Discussion ID A Unique identifier of the discussion argument A is part of
Argument ID B Unique identifier for argument B in regards to the discussion it is part of
Discussion ID B Unique identifier of the discussion argument B is part of
Comparison Denotes the direction of the comparison; can be "A" if argument A is better, "B" if argument B is better, of "Tie", if both arguments are equal.
Relevance Annotations
Key Explanation
Task ID ID of the annotation task this annotation was part of.
Argument ID Unique identifier for the argument in regards to the discussion it is part of
Discussion ID Unique identifier of the discussion the argument is part of
Relevance Denotes the relevance of this argument with regards to the topic on a scale of 0 (low) to 4 (high). -2 is used to mark irrelevant text.
Is Argument? Boolean value, indicating wether the item is an argument, or not

Model Implementation

A Python implementation is included. See code comments for additional implementation details. Also, an example describing the usage of the model is given, and can be applied to the Webis-ArgQuality-20-Rawdata to derive the processed version.
