Did SentiStrength get the wrong answer? If you think that it is missing a word or has the wrong score for a word, please email m dot thelwall at wlv.ac.uk with your suggestion. SentiStrength does not always get the right answer and the term weightings sometimes compromise between different common uses of a word. For example, "love" is normally a strong emotion in "I love you" but is moderate in "Love from Mike", neutral in "if you really want me you gotta show me love" and negative in "Love will tear us apart" so the average common strength is used.
