Sarcasm and Sentiment Detection in Arabic: investigating the interest of character-level features

EACL (WANLP) 2021  ·  Dhaou Ghoul, Gaël Lejeune ·

We present three methods developed for the Shared Task on Sarcasm and Sentiment Detection in Arabic. We present a baseline that uses character n-gram features. We also propose two more sophisticated methods: a recurrent neural network with a word level representation and an ensemble classifier relying on word and character-level features. We chose to present results from an ensemble classifier but it was not very successful as compared to the best systems : 22th/37 on sarcasm detection and 15th/22 on sentiment detection. It finally appeared that our baseline could have been improved and beat those results.
