This resource includes three datasets. Each dataset consists of pairs of snippets related to a topic and annotated as in agreement or disagreement.

The three datasets are:

Each pair is manually annotated with  agreement/disagreement relation, sentiment, and similarity of the solution proposed with respect of the debated topic
