    • Most-cited paper for the journal Computational Linguistics, according to Google Scholar and to MIT Press.
    • Test of Time Award from the Association for Computational Linguistics. Citation: “This paper shows how a lexicon-based approach can be effective for sentiment analysis, and more importantly, also stable and portable across domains. Despite the current dominance of learning-based methods, lexicon-based methods for sentiment analysis keep being relevant, particularly in new domains where large training data isn’t available and where portability is crucial.”
