On a multi-dimensional text categorization task, we compare the effectiveness of a fea- ture based approach with the use of a state- of-the-art sequential learning technique that has proven successful for tasks such as “email act classification”. Our evaluation demonstrates for the three separate dimen- sions of a well established annotation scheme that novel thread based features have a greater and more consistent impact on classification performance.
