Verb Polarity Frames: a New Resource and its Application in Target-specific Polarity Classification

  • We discuss target-specific polarity classification for German news texts. Novel, verb-specific features are used in a Simple Logistic Regression model. The polar perspective a verb casts on its grammatical roles is exploited. Also, an additional, largely neglected polarity class is examined: controversial texts. We found that the straightforward definition of ’controversial’ is problematic. More or less balanced polarities in a text are a poor indicator of controversy. Instead, non-polar wording helps more than polarity aggregation. However, our novel features proved useful for the remaining polarity classes.
