Inhoud vak

Subjectivity is one of the key elements of natural language. Every
communicative act is subjective to some degree. Subjectivity starts with
the intentions of the producer of the message and affects its associated
functions and syntactic structures, not to mention the choice of
vocabulary and associated connotations. This course combines theoretical
linguistic notions used in techniques such as sentiment analysis and
opinion mining with hands-on work on real
language data. Moving between theory, discussions, practical
data annotation and tools (e.g. sentiment analysis, opinion mining) you
explore some of the following linguistic
modality, sentiment, emotions, opinions and stance.
