AbstractOpinions expressed about a particular subject are often nuanced:a person may have both negative and positive opinions aboutdifferent aspects of the subject of interest, and these aspect-specific opinionscan be independent of the overall opinion. Being able to identify,collect, and count these nuanced opinions in a large set of data offersmore insight into the strengths and weaknesses of competing productsand services than does aggregating overall ratings. We contribute a newconfidence-based co-training algorithm that can identify product aspectsand sentiments expressed about such aspects. Our algorithm offers betterprecision than existing methods, and handles previously unseen languagewell. We show competitive results on a set of opinionated sentences aboutlaptops and restaurants from a SemEval-2014 Task 4 challenge.
