Abstract

In this paper we present the construction and analysis of memorable spoken quote corpora from TED public speaking. Memorable quotes are interesting and useful words which usually contain generic pearls of wisdom that could achieve public awareness and retained in people consciousness. Our study aims to reveal why can some public speeches can be retained in people mind and make their consciousness to like and share it, while some others can not. To achieve this purpose, the relevance corpora is required to perform system quantitative evaluation. In this study, we start with the collection of the corpus from TED public speaking. Specifically, we utilize 899 video files of TED Talks and more than 2000 speech quotes annotated by TED team. We then complement the data with non-memorable quotes. According to shares number of quotes which are provided by TED, we also annotate memorable quotes with popularity factor. Analysis of memorable spoken quotes is done based on speech duration, F0, and popularity.
