    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Sentiment analysis and opinion mining are the tasks of identifying positive or negative opinions and emotions from pieces of text. The SentiWordNet (SWN) plays an important role in extracting opinions from texts. It is a publicly available sentiment measuring tool used in sentiment classification and opinion mining. We firstly discuss the development of the English SWN for versions 1.0 and 3.0. This is to provide the basis for developing an equivalent SWN for the Arabic language through a mapping to the latest version of the English SWN 3.0. We also discuss the construction of an annotated sentiment corpus for Arabic and its relationship to the Arabic SWN.
