Anywhere but here: Enron's emails in the midst of a crisis

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

    Abstract

    The emotional states of employees under stress are likely to manifest themselves in ways other in interpersonal interactions, namely, emails. The Enron Email Corpus was mined by both supervised and unsupervised methods to determine the degree to which this was true for Enron employees whilst the corporation was under investigation. Changes in language patterns were then compared against the timelines of the investigation. The method as described validates both the use of a subset of a very large corpus and the use of tagging methods to understand the patterns in various phrase types as used by Enron employees.
