OGTD (Offensive Greek Tweet Dataset)

OGTD is the first collection of Greek tweets containing profanity. This dataset was first created for the completion of my MA for the University of Wolverhampton in the Computation Linguistics course, in a thesis titled “Detecting Offensive Posts in Greek Social Media”. A manually annotated dataset containing 4,779 posts from Twitter. Data is annotated as offensive and not offensive. Exclusively in the Greek language. Contains text files.

AESI (Athens Emotional States Inventory) Dataset

The AESI dataset consists of sentences each having content indicative of the corresponding emotion. The emotional content was assessed through a survey of 40 young participants with a questionnaire following the Latin square design. The emotional sentences that were correctly identified by 85% of the participants were recorded in a soundproof room with microphones and cameras. The resulting database contains 696 recorded utterances in the Greek language by 20 native speakers and has a total duration of approximately 28 min. Contains audio files.

The Greek Sign Language (GSL) Dataset

This dataset contains 10,290 sentence instances, 40,785 gloss instances, 310 unique glosses (vocabulary size), and 331 unique sentences, with 4.23 glosses per sentence on average. Each signer is asked to perform the pre-defined dialogues five consecutive times. In all cases, the simulation considers a deaf person communicating with a single public service employee.
