Sentiment analysis is a popular research area in computer science. It aims to determine the attitude of a person with respect to some topic, such as his mood or opinion from textual documents generated by the person. With the proliferation of social micro-blogging sites, opinion text has become available in digital forms, thus enabling research on sentiment analysis to both deepen and broaden in different sociological fields, particularly in the finance field.
