A paper introduces a new task of politeness transfer which involves converting non-polite sentences to polite sentences while preserving the meaning . We design a tag and generate pipeline that identifies stylistic attributes and generates a sentence in the target style while preserving most of the source content . For politeness as well as five other transfer tasks, our model outperforms the state-of-the-art methods on automatic metrics for content preservation, with a comparable or better performance on style transfer accuracy . We also provide a dataset of more than 1.39 instances automatically labeled for politeness to encourage benchmark evaluations on this new task . The data and code is located at https://github.com/tag-and-generate .
