Previous work on social power modelling from linguistic cues has been limited by the range of available data. We introduce a new corpus of dialogues, generated in a controlled experimental setting where participant roles were manipulated to generate a perceived difference in social power. Initial results demonstrate successful differentiation of upwards, downwards, and level communications, using a classifier built on a small set of stylistic features.
