Abstract: Many search systems exist on the Internet. However, no system searches for information based on a query related to a user's sentiment. We propose a system that searches for information based on a user's sentiment. In this paper, we propose a words-of-wisdom search system as a first step of that research. Specifically, we propose a six-dimensional sentiment vector for words-of-wisdom. Next, we propose a method for calculating the value of sentiment words that consist of words-of-wisdom based on our experiment. Subsequently, we calculate sentiment values of words-of-wisdom using the value of sentiment words. We developed a prototype system and conducted experiments.
Keywords: sentiment search; multi-dimensional sentiment; words-of-wisdom; user feelings; user sentiments.
