Appraisal in the Text Sentiment Project

As part of a project to extract sentiment automatically from text, we used the Appraisal framework to annotate texts.

London: Palgrave McMillan.

Any comments or suggestions on the network are more than welcome. I would also like to share annotations, or conclusions drawn from (especially large-scale) annotations. Send to Maite Taboada (
