Linguistic Project For English Speakers
This project involves source research for a list of terms in US English, the grammatical expansion of those terms (morphological variants), the categorization of each variant with respect to identity (i.e., does or can the word refer to people and, if so, does it refer to ethnicity, sexual orientation, political opinion, etc.) and connotation judgments for each word (i.e., whether or not the word has or can have a pejorative connotation).
The purpose of this project is to help identify hate speech online. In addition to the main project, we are collecting in-group judgments for specific identity groups to ensure the data is inclusive and unbiased.
