Covid NZ Twitter Corpus

The Covid NZ Twitter (CovidNZT) Corpus consists of 40,243 tweets obtained between 22 February and 10 November 2020 (1,001 of which have been manually coded). All tweets contain the hashtag #covid19nz, including variations with one or more capital letters. The aim of the project is to study linguistic strategies which tweeters use to express their viewpoints and stance in Covid-related tweets. In particular, one of our points of interests is the use of directives.
