LanguageLogger: A Mobile Keyboard Application for Studying Language Use in Everyday Text Communication in the Wild (Proc. ACM Hum.-Comput. Interact., June 2020)
▹Paper (ACM DL) · Project website
We present a new keyboard app as a research tool to collect data on language use in everyday mobile text communication (e.g. chats). Our approach enables researchers to collect such data during unconstrained natural typing without logging readable messages to preserve privacy. We achieve this with a combination of three customisable text abstraction methods that run directly on participants' phones. Our research tool thus facilitates diverse interdisciplinary projects interested in language data, e.g. in HCI, AI, Linguistics, and Psychology.
