Multilingual Sentiment Analysis Workshop

Perry-Castañeda Library, Learning Lab 4

In this text analysis workshop, we will be learning how to perform sentiment analysis, a method to determine if a text is positive or negative, using R programming language and narratives as a multilingual dataset. Jennifer Isasi (CLIR/DLF Postdoctoral Fellow in Data Curation) will teach the basics on how to use the syuzhet package in R implementing the NRC Emotion Lexicon to extract data on eight basic emotions (anger, fear, anticipation, trust, surprise, sadness, joy, and disgust) and two sentiments (negative and positive) in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
