As supervised machine learning methods for addressing tasks in natural language processing (NLP) prove increasingly viable, the focus of attention is naturally shifted towards the creation of training data. The manual annotation of corpora is a tedious and time consuming process. To obtain high-quality annotated data constitutes a bottleneck in machine learning for NLP today. Active learning is one way of easing the burden of annotation. This paper presents a first probe into the NLP research community concerning the nature of the annotation projects undertaken in general, and the use of active learning as annotation support in particular.
