Abstract

Aspect-based Sentiment Analysis assists in understanding the opinion of the associated entities helping for a better quality of a service or a product. A model is developed to detect the aspect-based sentiment in Nepali text using Machine Learning (ML) classifier algorithms namely Support Vector Machine (SVM) and Naïve Bayes (NB). The system collects Nepali text data from various websites and Part of Speech (POS) tagging is applied to extract the desired features of aspect and sentiment. Manual labeling is done for each sentence to identify the sentiment of the sentence. Term Frequency – Inverse Document Frequency (TF-IDF) is applied to compute the importance of the words. The feature vectors thus produced are then applied to the Classifier algorithms to predict and classify the sentence. The accuracy obtained by the SVM classifier is 76.8% whereas Bernoulli NB is 77.5%.
