Research process seminar. Dictionary-based computer-assisted text analysis. March 29th at 2pm on Zoom

You are warmly invited to this week’s research process seminar. Hosted by FMC but open to all staff and research students.

This week’s one captures the spirit of the seminar series in a nutshell: interdisciplinary, practical and accessible. Hopefully of interest to colleagues from across the university.

Dictionary-based computer-assisted text analysis – by Prof. Irene Pollach (Aarhus University)

Researchers often use all-purpose sentiment dictionaries compiled for other purposes to measure sentiment in their textual data. I will discuss the validity challenges associated with using all-purpose dictionaries to measure sentiment in texts, especially news texts. Further, I will present recommendations for applying all-purpose sentiment dictionaries with higher accuracy.
