Abstract Our day-to-day life has always been inuenced by what people think. Ideas and opinions of others have always aected our own opinions. The explosion of Web 2.0 has led to increased activity in Podcasting, Blogging, Tagging, Contributing to RSS, Social Bookmarking, and Social Networking. As a result there has been an eruption of interest in people to mine these vast resources of data for opinions. Sentiment Analysis or Opinion Mining is the computational treatment of opinions, sentiments and subjectivity of text. In this report, we discuss various approaches to perform a computational treatment of sentiments and opinions. Various supervised or data-driven techniques to Sentiment Analysis like Naive Byes, Support Vector Machine and SentiWordNet approach to Sentiment Analysis.1 8. Chapter 1 Introduction 1.1What is Sentiment AnalysisSentiment Analysis is a Natural Language Processing and Information Extraction task that aims to obtain writers feelings expressed in positive or negative comments, questions and requests, by analyzing a large numbers of documents.For example: I am so happy today,good morning to everyone, is a general positive text.Generally speaking, sentiment analysis aims to determine the attitude of a speaker or a writer with respect to some topic or the overall functonality of a document.Sentiment analysis is also known as opinion mining. Basically, Sentiment Analysis is the task of identifying whether the opinion expressed in a text is Positive or Negative. Natural language processing (NLP) is a eld of computer science, articial intelligence, and linguistics concerned with the interactions between computers and human (natural) languages.1.2Need of Sentiment AnalysisAccording to a recent statistics by the Social Media tracking company Technorati, four out of every ve users of Internet use social media in some form. This includes friendship networks, blogging and micro-blogging sites, content and video sharing sites etc. It is worth observing that the World Wide Web has now completely transformed into a more participative and co-creative Web. It allows a large number of users to contribute in a variety of forms. The fact is that even those who are virtually novice to the technicalities of the Web publishing are creating content on the Web. In fact the value of a Website is now determined largely by its user base, which in turn decides the amount of data available on it. It may perhaps be true to say that Data is the new Intel inside.[1] One such interesting form of user contributions on the Web is reviews. Many sites on the Web allow users to write their experiences or opinion about a product or service in form 2 9. CHAPTER 1. INTRODUCTION of a review. The Web is now full of userreviews for dierent items ranging from mobile phones, holiday trips, and hotel services to movie reviews etc. It is interesting to observe that these reviews not only express opinions of a group of users but is also a valuable source for harnessing collective intelligence. For example, a user looking for a hotel in a particular tourist city may prefer to go through the reviews of available hotels in the city before making a decision to book in one of them. Or a user willing to buy a particular model of digital camera may rst look at reviews posted by many other users about that camera before making a buying decision. This not only helps in allowing the user to get more and relevant information about dierent products and services on a mouse click, but also helps in arriving at a more informed decision. Sometimes users prefer to write their experiences about a product or service as form of a blog post rather than an explicit review. However, in both case the data is basically textual. Popular sites like carwale.com, imdb.com are now full of user reviews, in this case reviews of cars and movies respectively.[3] Though these reviews and posts are beyond doubt very useful and valuable, but at the same time it is also quite dicult for a new user (or a prospective customer) to read all the reviews/ posts in a short span of time. Fortunately we have a solution to this information overload problem which can present a comprehensive summary result out of a large number of reviews. The new Information Retrieval formulations, popularly called sentiment classiers, now not only allow to automatically label a review as positive or negative, but to extract and highlight positive and negative aspects of a product/ service. Sentiment analysis is now an important part of Information Retrieval based formulations in a variety of domains. It is traditionally used for automatic extraction of opinions types about a product and for highlighting positive or negative aspects/ features of a product. It is widely believed that Sentiment analysis is needed and useful. It is also widely accepted that extracting sentiment from text is a hard semantic problem even for human beings. So in general, Sentiment Analysis will be useful for extracting sentiments available on Blogging sites, Social Network, Discussion Forum in order to benet both company and customer/user.1.3SummeryWhat is Sentiment Analysis, what is the need of Sentiment Analysis and the basic introduction Sentiment Analysis has been covered in this chapter.3 10. Chapter 2 Literature Survey Balamurali et al. (2011) presents an innovative idea to introduce sense based sentiment analysis. This implies shifting from lexeme feature space to semantic space i.e. from simple words to their synsets. The works in Sentiment Analysis, for so long, concentrated on lexeme feature space or identifying relations between words using parsing. The need for integrating sense to Sentiment Analysis was the need of the hour due to the following scenarios, as identied by the authors: A word may have some sentiment-bearing and some non-sentiment-bearing senses There may be dierent senses of a word that bear sentiment of opposite polarity The same sense can be manifested by dierent words (appearing in the same synset) Using sense as features helps to exploit the idea of sense/concepts and the hierarchical structure of the WordNet. The following feature representations were used by the authors and their performance were compared to that of lexeme based features: A group of word senses that have been manually annotated (M) A group of word senses that have been annotated by an automatic WSD (I) A group of manually annotated word senses and words (both separately as features) (Sense + Words(M)) A group of automatically annotated word senses and words (both separately as features) (Sense + Words(I)) Sense + Words(M) and Sense + Words(I) were used to overcome non-coverage of WordNet for some noun synsets. The authors used synset-rep
