Sentiment Analysis is an important research direction of natural language processing, and it is widely used in politics, news and other fields. Word embeddings play a significant role in sentiment analysis. The existing sentiment embeddings methods directly embed the sentiment lexicons into traditional word representation. This sentiment representation methods can only differentiate the sentiment information of different words, not the same word in different contexts, so it cannot provide

First, we found the optimal sentiment concept of words in Microsoft Concept Graph according to the context of words. Then we obtained the sentiment information of words under optimal sentiment concept from the multi-semantics sentiment intensity lexicon which we constructed in this paper to achieve accurate embedding of sentiment information and provide more accurate semantics and sentiment representation for words. Finally, we combined two refined word embeddings methods to achieve a more comprehensive word representation. Compared with traditional and sentiment embeddings methods on six representative datasets, the validity of the word embeddings method based on sentiment concept proposed in this paper is verified.
