This is a demonstration of sentiment analysis using a
NLTK 2.0.4 powered text classification process.
It can tell you whether it thinks the text you enter below expresses
negative sentiment, or if it's
neutral. Using hierarchical classification,
neutrality is determined first, and sentiment polarity is
determined second, but only if the text is not neutral.
The english sentiment uses classifiers trained on both twitter sentiment as well as movie reviews from the data sets created by Bo Pang and Lillian Lee using nltk-trainer (also on bitbucket). The dutch sentiment is based on book reviews.
The results will be more accurate on text that is similar to original training data. If you get an odd result, it could be the words you've used are unrecognized. Try entering more words to improve accuracy.
