Sentiment Analysis

Tinderbox's tagger mechanism also attempts to analyse the general tenor or sentiment of each note. Sentiment is measured on a scale from +1 to -1; an enthusiastic note like :

"This cheese is tasty, wholesome, and creamy. It is a delight!"

is scored near 1, whereas a critical note like:

"This cheese is rotten, slimy, and stale. It tastes terrible and should be thrown away."

is scored near -1.

The average sentiment for the entire note is stored in $Sentiment, and the score for each paragraph of the note is stored in $Sentiments.

Sentiment analysis is available in seven major languages using macOS 10.15 and later.
