A polarity lexicon is the foundation of sentiment analysis and orientation analysis. An overall and effective polarity lexicon was constructed, including base lexicon, domain lexicon, network lexicon and modifier lexicon. The influence of modifiers to polarity words was studied. A sentiment analysis method based on a polarity lexicon was proposed, in which the modifiers and polarity words were combined into polarity phrases, and the phrase was used as the basic unit to compute the polarity of sentences and texts. Experimental results showed that the effect of orientation analysis using polarity lexicon raised in this paper was good.
