Annika Marie Schoene, Nina Dethlefs
2016 Proceedings of the 10th SIGHUM Workshop on Language Technology for Cultural Heritage, Social Sciences, and Humanities  
In this paper, we investigate whether it is possible to automatically identify suicide notes and discern them from other types of online discourse based on analysis of sentiments and linguistic features  ...  Psychological studies have shown that our state of mind can manifest itself in the linguistic features we use to communicate.  ...  Discussion of Sentiment Features Apart from the overall classification accuracy, we were interested in the contribution of the individ-ual sentiment and linguistic feature sets.  ...

Detecting Critical Responses from Deliberate Self-harm Videos on YouTube

Muhammad Abubakar Alhassan, Diane Pennington
2020 Proceedings of the 2020 Conference on Human Information Interaction and Retrieval  
Using current state-of-the-art classifiers, we propose a model enriched with psycho-linguistic and sentiment features that can detect critical comments in need of urgent support.  ...  Due to a large amount of responses generated from these videos, it is very challenging for social media teams to respond to a vulnerable commentator who is at risk.  ...  This corresponds to the high negative sentiments found in suicide notes [19] . Another important feature that reflect who we are is the language we use in our writings.  ...

2014 arXiv   pre-print
Currently, we have identified 53 known suicidal cases who posted suicide notes on Weibo prior to their deaths.We explore linguistic features of these known cases using a psychological lexicon dictionary  ...  It would therefore be desirable to detect suicidal ideations from microblogs in real-time, and immediately alert appropriate support groups, which may lead to successful prevention.  ...  With the help of linguistic dictionaries, we are able to extract a set of features from those basic attributes as the first step, such as keywords, negations, negative emotions, and so on.  ...
