Abstract

Among other domains and topics on which some issues are frequently argued in the blogosphere, the domain of crime is one of the most seriously discussed by various kinds of bloggers. Such information on crimes in blogs is especially valuable for outsiders from abroad who are not familiar with cultures and crimes in foreign countries. This paper proposes a framework of cross-lingually analyzing people’s concerns, reports, and experiences on crimes in their own blogs. In the retrieval of blog feeds/posts, we take two approaches, focusing on various types of bloggers such as experts in the crime domain and victims of criminal acts.
