A holistic lexicon-based approach to opinion mining

  title={A holistic lexicon-based approach to opinion mining},
  author={Xiaowen Ding and B. Liu and Philip S. Yu},
  booktitle={Web Search and Data Mining},
One of the important types of information on the Web is the opinions expressed in the user generated content, e.g., customer reviews of products, forum posts, and blogs. In this paper, we focus on customer reviews of products. In particular, we study the problem of determining the semantic orientations (positive, negative or neutral) of opinions expressed on product features in reviews. This problem has many applications, e.g., opinion mining, summarization and search. Most existing techniques… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Feature-Based Opinion Mining Using Ontological Resources

The task of deciding whether a given term has a positive connotation, or a negative connotation by using feature-based opinion mining with ontology where opinions expressed towards each feature of an object or a product are extracted and summarized is tackled.

Automatic Expansion of Feature-Level Opinion Lexicons

This paper introduces a technique to build domain-specific, feature-level opinion lexicons in a semi-supervised manner: first, a lexicon is induced starting from a small set of annotated documents; then, it is expanded automatically from a larger set of unannotated documents, using a new graph-based ranking algorithm.

Techniques and Trends for Fine-Grained Opinion Mining and Sentiment Analysis: Recent Survey

This study aims to present, survey and compare in the first place the important recent Aspect-based opinion mining approaches relevant to important languages such English, Arabic and Chinese and commonly datasets used in literature so that future researchers could improve their results.

Combining Granularity-based Topic-Dependent and Topic-Independent Evidences for Opinion Detection

This thesis proposes an approach which takes into account both information from the current news article as well as from the past relevant articles in order to detect the most important entities in theCurrent news.

Automatic construction of domain and aspect specific sentiment lexicons for customer review mining

This work proposes a novel method that allows to automatically adapt and extend existing lexicons to a specific product domain and shows that the extracted lexicons are highly accurate and significantly improve the performance in a sentiment classification scenario.

Summarizing customer review based on product feature and opinion

A supervised lazy learning model utilizing syntactic rules for the product features and opinion words extraction in subjective review sentences is proposed and shows that proposed method can improve the performance of existing work in terms of average precision, recall and f-score.

Feature-Based Summarizing and Ranking from Customer Reviews

This work dedicates its work to the task of opinion summarization, where the polarity and numeric score of all the features are determined by Senti-WordNet Lexicon and Probabilistic based model of supervised learning will improve the result that is more flexible and effective.

Aspect based Summarization of Context Dependent Opinion Words

A Survey On Complementary Aspect Based Opinion Targets With Opinion Words Co-Extraction In Opinion Mining

  • Computer Science
  • 2018
A Complementary Aspect based Opinion Targets with Opinion Words Co-Extraction Algorithm is proposed, and Experimental Result shows the proposed algorithm extracts opinion targets and opinion words more precisely.

Summarization by Feature-Opinion Pairs from Web Opinion Sources

This paper dedicates its work to the main subtask of summarization for the product, where the Probabilistic based model of supervised learning and dependency tree will improve the result that is more flexible and effective.



The utility of linguistic rules in opinion mining

This paper proposes to use some linguistic rules to deal with the problem of determining the semantic orientations (positive or negative) of opinions expressed on product features in reviews together with a new opinion aggregation function.

Opinion Extraction, Summarization and Tracking in News and Blog Corpora

Both news and web blog articles are investigated and algorithms for opinion extraction at word, sentence and document level are proposed, and the issue of relevant sentence selection is discussed, and then topical and opinionated information are summarized.

Determining Term Subjectivity and Term Orientation for Opinion Mining

The task of deciding whether a given term has a positive connotations, or a negative connotation, or has no subjective connotation at all is confronted, and it is shown that determining subjectivity and orientation is a much harder problem than determining orientation alone.

Movie review mining and summarization

A multi-knowledge based approach is proposed, which integrates WordNet, statistical analysis and movie knowledge, and the experimental results show the effectiveness of the proposed approach in movie review mining and summarization.

Mining and summarizing customer reviews

This research aims to mine and to summarize all the customer reviews of a product, and proposes several novel techniques to perform these tasks.

Extracting Product Features and Opinions from Reviews

Opine is introduced, an unsupervised information-extraction system which mines reviews in order to build a model of important product features, their evaluation by reviewers, and their relative quality across products.

Mining product reputations on the Web

A new framework for mining product reputations on the Internet is presented, which offers a drastic reduction in the overall cost of reputation analysis over that of conventional survey approaches and supports the discovery of knowledge from the pool of opinions on the web.

Mining WordNet for a Fuzzy Sentiment: Sentiment Tag Extraction from WordNet Glosses

Net Overlap Score can be used as a measure of the words degree of membership in the fuzzy category of sentiment: the core adjectives were identified most accurately both by STEP and by human annotators, while the words on the periphery of the category had the lowest scores and were associated with low rates of inter-annotator agreement.

Sentiment analysis: capturing favorability using natural language processing

This paper illustrates a sentiment analysis approach to extract sentiments associated with polarities of positive or negative for specific subjects from a document, instead of classifying the whole

Mining Comparative Sentences and Relations

This paper proposes two novel techniques based on two new types of sequential rules to perform the tasks of comparative sentence mining and results show that these techniques are very promising.
