Aspects of stance have significant potential for information retrieval and filtering. This technical report is about stance in radio news broadcast, and is intended primarily to motivate and document details of the data and annotations used in the work reported in Inferring Stance from Prosody (Ward et al., 2016). It describes the process of identifying 14 important aspects of stance, describes two corpora for investigating stance, describes the annotation of those corpora, presents some preliminary observations, and lists a set of useful prosodic features.
