Most research on determining the strength of subjective expressions in a sentence or document uses single, specific parts of speech such as adjectives, adverbs, or verbs. To date, almost no research covers the development of a single comprehensive framework in which we can analyze sentiment that takes all three into account. The authors propose the AVA (adjective verb adverb) framework for identifying opinions on any given topic. In AVA, a user can select any topic t of interest and any document d. AVA will return a score that d expresses topic t. The score is expressed on a #x02013;1 (maximally negative) to +1 (maximally positive) scale.
