In this paper we present the new release of CORPS (CORpus of tagged Political Speeches) that contains transcripts of political speeches tagged with audience reactions, such as APPLAUSE or LAUGHTER. The corpus has been built with the goal of allowing automatic processing of the stored data. These tags signal hot-spots about persuasive communication and can be usefully employed in many theoretical and applied fields, providing insights well beyond those of traditional word-count approaches. After introducing the main characteristics of the corpus and some quantitative descriptions, we discuss possible uses of this resource.
