Title A Large Self-Annotated Corpus for Sarcasm
Authors Mikhail Khodak, Nikunj Saunshi and Kiran Vodrahalli
Abstract We introduce the Self-Annotated Reddit Corpus (SARC), a large corpus for sarcasm research and for training and evaluating systems for sarcasm detection. The corpus has 1.3 million sarcastic statements --- 10 times more than any previous dataset --- and many times more instances of non-sarcastic statements, allowing for learning in both balanced and unbalanced label regimes. Each statement is furthermore self-annotated --- sarcasm is labeled by the author, not an independent annotator --- and provided with user, topic, and conversation context. We evaluate the corpus for accuracy, construct benchmarks for sarcasm detection, and evaluate baseline methods.
Topics Document Classification, Text Categorisation, Corpus (Creation, Annotation, Etc.), Opinion Mining / Sentiment Analysis
