Abstract

We tackle the problem of identifying deceptive agents in highly-motivated high-conflict dialogues. We consider the case where we only have textual information. We show the usefulness of psycho-linguistic deception and persuasion features on a small dataset for the game of Werewolf. We analyse the role of syntax and we identify some characteristics of players in deceptive roles.
