Abstract

The Internet has become one of the significant sources for sharing information and expressing users’ opinions about products and their interests with the associated aspects. It is essential to learn about product reviews; however, to react to such reviews, extracting aspects of the entity to which these reviews belong is equally important. Aspect-based Sentiment Analysis (ABSA) refers to aspects extracted from an opinionated text. The literature proposes different approaches for ABSA; however, most research is focused on supervised approaches, which require labeled datasets with manual sentiment polarity labeling and aspect tagging. This study proposes a semi-supervised approach with minimal human supervision to extract aspect terms by detecting the aspect categories. Hence, the study deals with two main sub-tasks in ABSA, named Aspect Category Detection (ACD) and Aspect Term Extraction (ATE). In the first sub-task, aspects categories are extracted using topic modeling and filtered by an oracle further, and it is fed to zero-shot learning as the prompts and the augmented text. The predicted categories are the input to find similar phrases curated with extracting meaningful phrases (e.g., Nouns, Proper Nouns, NER (Named Entity Recognition) entities) to detect the aspect terms. The study sets a baseline accuracy for two main sub-tasks in ABSA on the Multi-Aspect Multi-Sentiment (MAMS) dataset along with SemEval-2014 Task 4 sub-task 1 to show that the proposed approach helps detect aspect terms via aspect categories.
