Generating Domain-Specific Clues Using News Corpus for Sentiment Classification
Keywords:Sentiment Classification, Domain Adaptation, Clue Generation
This paper addresses the problem of automatically generating domain-specific sentiment clues. The main idea is to bootstrap from a small seed set and generate new clues by using dependencies and collocation information between sentiment clues and sentence-level topics that would be a primary subject of sentiment expression (e.g., event, company, and person). The experiments show that the aggregated clues are effective for sentiment classification.
