The Meaning of Hashtags Matters: Detecting Hashtags Such as #JeSuisKouachi

13 pagesPublished: November 29, 2016

Abstract

In this paper, we model how the contexts of situation and of discourse restrict meaning potential and apply the resulting model in automatic linguistic analysis of hashtags for tasks of sentiment analysis. With our model, we are able to assign different meanings to \#JeSuisCharlie and \#JeSuisKouachi and variations of them.

Keyphrases: hashtag, hate speech, NLP, parsing
