Abstract

In this paper we outline our ongoing research program towards creating an automated privacy dictionary. Previous research applied prototype theory, a classic linguistic approach, to develop a new definition of the concept of privacy. Building on these findings, we will employ an integrated top-down and data-driven linguistic analysis to an existing dataset of qualitative interviews in different contexts, in order to identify privacy specific markers. Apart from its theoretical contribution, this work aims at providing a novel methodological tool to assist researchers in detecting privacy relevant discourse.
