Sentiment Toolkit: Introduction


The Sentiment Toolkit was built to assist in the development and management of "hand-scored dictionary" (HSD) files, for use in adjusting the sentiment analysis performed by Salience Engine to your needs. It is an efficient tool for parsing a large number of documents for potential sentiment phrases, weighting those phrases, and putting them into the HSD.
