Opinion targets identification is an important task of the opinion mining problem. Several approaches have been employed for this task, which can be broadly divided into two major categories: supervised and unsupervised. The supervised approaches require training data, which need manual work and are mostly domain dependent. The unsupervised technique is most popularly used due to its two main advantages: domain independent and no need for training data. This study presents a review of the state
