Towards Sentiment Analysis on German Literature

, , , and . KI 2017: Advances in Artificial Intelligence, page 387--394. Cham, Springer International Publishing, (2017)


Sentiment Analysis is a Natural Language Processing-task that is relevant in a number of contexts, including the analysis of literature. We report on ongoing research towards enabling, for the first time, sentence-level Sentiment Analysis in the domain of German novels. We create a labelled dataset from sentences extracted from German novels and, by adapting existing sentiment classifiers, reach promising F1-scores of 0.67 for binary polarity classification.
