Lexicon Classifier

The LexiconClassifier uses the best performing lexicon of Fredriksen and Jahren. You can specify your own lexicon, see Options below.


from fjlc import LexiconClassifier
lc = LexiconClassifier()

You can classify a single tweet or a list of tweets:

>>> lc.classify("I am happy!")
>>> lc.classify(["I am happy!", "I hate rain"])

You can get the sentiment value of a single tweet or multiple tweets

>>> lc.classify("I am happy!")
>>> lc.classify(["I am happy!", "I hate rain"])
[5.599244615570646, -2.767224666516315]

Lexicon Creator
