Value: string


Specifies a newline-escaped string that contains the sentiment rules to use. This option enables you to augment the default sentiment rules that are used. Rules specified with the senti_rules tag are applied after any rules in the files identified by the senti_list tag.

A sentiment rule consists of a positive or negative symbol followed by the target phrase. For example, the following is a very minimal sentiment rule list:

- absolute idiot
+ absolutely free

When supplying this rule as an argument to the senti_rules option, the newline-escaped version would look like the following:

"- absolute idiot\n+ absolutely free"


The \n notation shown in the example above is for typographic purposes only. It is used as a placeholder to indicate where you need to place a newline character.
