AFINN is an affective lexicon by Finn Årup Nielsen. Previous and present versions of the word list are available in a zip file:

The word list and its evaluation are described in:

A new ANEW: evaluation of a word list for sentiment analysis in microblogs


[edit] Relationship to ANEW

Although the title of the associated paper suggests that it is based on the ANEW labeled corpus, it is not. The title is simply a wordpun. It was developed independently of the wordlist, and it is not a revision of it. Compared to ANEW, the AFINN word list has more words and includes obscene words. ANEW on the other hand has (besides valence) arousal and dominance for each word and each word has been labeled by several persons and the mean and standard deviation are given. The AFINN was only labeled by Finn Årup Nielsen. Finn Årup Nielsen was in no way involved in development of ANEW. ANEW was developed by Margaret M. Bradley and Peter J. Lang.

The word list has been used for sentiment analysis and is developed in the Responsible Business in the Blogosphere project.

[edit] Evaluation

  1. Correlation with Alan Mislove's 1000 AMT-labeled tweet post, see A new ANEW: evaluation of a word list for sentiment analysis in microblogs
  2. Correlation with 50 positive and negative manually labeled tweets: 76%-78%, see Analyzing emotion on Twitter for using modeling
  1. Around 0.55 in three-class accuracy on RepLab Twitter data set. However, this is a combined list consisting of AFINN, SentiWordNet and Liu wordlist used as features in a decision tree machine learning classifier.[1]
  2. 0.72-0.77 accuracy in two-class polarity classification with Twitter corpora.[2]
  3. 0.65-0.79 accuracy in two-class subjectivity classification with Twitter corpora.[3]
  4. Performance on product reviews is reported in Data-driven integration of multiple sentiment dictionaries for lexicon-based sentiment classification of product reviews.
  5. 71% and 63% accuracy on two-class polarity classification on Twitter data.[4]
  6. 62.2% accuracy on two-class sentiment analysis of the movie review data set
