Towards Syntactic Iberian Polarity Classification

David Vilares, Marcos Garcia, Miguel A. Alonso, Carlos Gómez-Rodríguez


Abstract
Lexicon-based methods using syntactic rules for polarity classification rely on parsers that are dependent on the language and on treebank guidelines. Thus, rules are also dependent and require adaptation, especially in multilingual scenarios. We tackle this challenge in the context of the Iberian Peninsula, releasing the first symbolic syntax-based Iberian system with rules shared across five official languages: Basque, Catalan, Galician, Portuguese and Spanish. The model is made available.
