Learning theories for noun-phrase sentiment composition


Petrakis, S; Klenner, M (2011). Learning theories for noun-phrase sentiment composition. In: 8th International NLPCS Workshop, Kopenhagen, 20 August 2011 - 21 August 2011, 179-188.

Abstract

The work presented here is an approach to Sentiment Analy-
sis from a rule-based, compositional perspective. The proposed approach is characterized by three major points: (a) rules are automatically learned from annotated corpora using Inductive Logic Programming and represented as Prolog sets of clauses, (b) the focus is on the noun-phrase (NP) level, and (c) learning is performed on deep-parsed structures. We describe the process of annotating a collection of some 3000 German NPs of medium to quite complex structure, as well as the empirical evaluation of
our implementation, in comparison with commonly used classifiers and a handcrafted rule-based system.
