Scales and Scores. An evaluation of methods to determine the intensity of subjective expressions

  • In this contribution, we present a survey of several methods that have been applied to the ordering of various types of subjective expressions (e.g. good < great), in particular adjectives and adverbs. Some of these methods use linguistic regularities that can be observed in large text corpora while others rely on external grounding in metadata, in particular the star ratings associated with product reviews. We discuss why these methods do not work uniformly across all types of expressions. We also present the first application of some of these methods to the intensity ordering of nouns (e.g. moron < dummy).
