Identifying Collocations for Recognizing Opinions

Janyce M. Wiebe, Theresa Wilson, and Matthew Bell

Abstract

Subjectivity in natural language refers to aspects of language used to express opinions and evaluations (Banfield, 1982; Wiebe, 1994). There are numerous applications for which knowledge of subjectivity is relevant, including genre detection, information extraction, and information retrieval. This paper shows promising results for a straightforward method of identifying collocational clues of subjectivity, as well as evidence of the usefulness of these clues for recognizing opinionated documents.
