Automatic sarcasm detection is the task of predicting sarcasm in text. This is a crucial step to sentiment analysis, considering prevalence and challenges of sarcasm in sentiment-bearing text. Beginning with an approach that used speech-based features, automatic sarcasm detection has witnessed great interest from the sentiment analysis community. This article is a compilation of past work in automatic sarcasm detection. We observe three milestones in the research so far: semi-supervised pattern…

Approaches for Computational Sarcasm Detection : A Survey
TLDR
Rule-based, Machine Learning and Deep Learning approaches for detecting sarcasm and also describes various datasets are described and details of different features used by various sarcasm detection approaches from past upto the present are given.
Sarcasm and Irony Detection in English Tweets
TLDR
The results have shown that the text preprocessing has very little impact on the results, while the word and sub-word frequencies are the most usable characteristics for determining irony in tweets, suggesting that accurate irony detection in tweets can be a hard task even for humans.
Computational Sarcasm for Different Languages : A Survey
TLDR
This paper presents a concise survey of past approaches in computational sarcasm research for different languages, namely, English, Chinese, Dutch, Italian, Czech, Hindi and Indonesian respectively and describes datasets, approaches, and issues in sarcasm detection, interpretation and generation respectively.
CASCADE: Contextual Sarcasm Detection in Online Discussion Forums
TLDR
This paper proposes a ContextuAl SarCasm DEtector (CASCADE), which adopts a hybrid approach of both content- and context-driven modeling for sarcasm detection in online social media discussions.
Automatic Identification of Sarcasm Target: An Introductory Approach
TLDR
This paper presents an introductory approach for sarcasm target identification, and employs two types of extractors: one based on rules, and another consisting of a statistical classifier.
Sarcasm Detection From Twitter Database Using Text Mining Algorithms
TLDR
Evaluation of the results has been proved to be good in accuracy for identifying sarcastic impressions of people, except the SVM model has the lowest accuracy.
Sarc-M: Sarcasm Detection in Typo-graphic Memes
TLDR
This research proffers a model Sarc-M, a sarcastic meme predictor, for sarcasm detection in typo-graphic memes using supervised learning based on lexical, pragmatic and semantic features.
The Significance of Global Vectors Representation in Sarcasm Analysis
TLDR
The word vector model (GloVe) that integrate two major model families; Global statistics of matrix factorization technique and local context window based approach is investigated, able to build a word representation that do not only learn semantics and grammar information, but also captures the context of the word and information of global corpus statistics.
A Pattern-Based Approach for Sarcasm Detection on Twitter
TLDR
This paper proposes a pattern-based approach to detect sarcasm on Twitter and proposes four sets of features that cover the different types of sarcasm, which are used to classify tweets as sarcastic and non-sarcastic.

Automatic Sarcasm Detection: A Survey
TLDR
This paper is the first known compilation of past work in automatic sarcasm detection, observing three milestones in the research so far: semi-supervised pattern extraction to identify implicit sentiment, use of hashtag-based supervision, and use of context beyond target text.
Sarcasm Detection in Social Media Based on Imbalanced Classification
TLDR
Experimental results show that the ensemble approach outperforms the state-of-the-art sarcasm detection approaches and popular imbalanced classification methods.
Harnessing Cognitive Features for Sarcasm Detection
TLDR
This paper proposes a novel mechanism for enriching the feature vector, for the task of sarcasm detection, with cognitive features extracted from eye-movement patterns of human readers, with augmented cognitive features obtained from readers eye movement data.
Twitter Sarcasm Detection Exploiting a Context-Based Model
TLDR
This paper compared sarcastic utterances in twitter to utterances that express positive or negative attitudes without sarcasm, and shows that sequential classification effectively embodied evidence about the context information and is able to reach a relative increment in detection performance.
Parsing-based sarcasm sentiment recognition in Twitter data
TLDR
Two approaches to detect sarcasm in the text of Twitter data were proposed, the first is a parsing-based lexicon generation algorithm (PBLGA) and the second was to detecting sarcasm based on the occurrence of the interjection word.
A Deeper Look into Sarcastic Tweets Using Deep Convolutional Neural Networks
TLDR
This work develops models based on a pre-trained convolutional neural network for extracting sentiment, emotion and personality features for sarcasm detection and addresses the often ignored generalizability issue of classifying data that have not been seen by the models at learning phase.

TLDR
An analysis of the effect of sarcasm scope on the polarity of tweets, and a number of rules which enable the accuracy of sentiment analysis when sarcasm is known to be present are compiled.

TLDR
It is concluded that for progress to be made in real-world sarcasm detection, it will require a new class labelling scheme that is able to access the ‘common ground’ held between conversational parties.
