Sentiment analysis deals with methods for automatic analysis of the subjective aspects of the text. In this contribution we first present an overview of main approaches currently used in sentiment analysis. We further focus on feature selection methods for sentiment analysis and propose a new approach to feature selection. Our approach has been experimentally evaluated on movie review dataset. The results show that the proposed method is computationally efficient and in exchange sacrifices only… CONTINUE READING
