Asimina Vasalou of the University of Bath, Alastair Gill of the University of Surrey, Fadhila Mazanderani of the University of Oxford, Chrysanthi Papoutsi of the University of Oxford – Oxford Internet Institute, Anne-Marie Oostveen of the University of Oxford – Oxford Internet Institute, and Sacha Brostoff of the University College of London have an article developed for the British HCI 2010 Conference Privacy and Usability Methods (PUMP) Workshop, 2010: “The Prototype of Privacy: Analysing Privacy Discourse Through its Features.” Here’s the 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.
