We present an annotation scheme for information status (IS) in dialogue, and validate it on three Switchboard dialogues. We show that our scheme has good reproducibility, and compare it with previous attempts to code IS and related features. We eventually apply the scheme to 147 dialogues, thus producing a corpus that contains nearly 70,000 NPs annotated for IS and over 15,000 coreference links.
