For the past week, I have been looking at some available corpora found online. I was able to get one for free, namely the Open American National Corpus. It seems like it might be a better fit than the Blogs corpora. In the meantime, the TSVM is working and I have been getting some basic results. I have started working on implementing an exhaustive grid search to find the best parameters for the TSVM. I have also worked on the first draft of the paper, which is due next week. I am hoping to get the results from the grid search before Wednesday, so I can add those to the paper.
