We examine predicative adjectives as an unsu- pervised criterion to extract subjective adjec- tives. We do not only compare this criterion with a weakly supervised extraction method but also with gradable adjectives, i.e. another highly subjective subset of adjectives that can be extracted in an unsupervised fashion. In or- der to prove the robustness of this extraction method, we will evaluate the extraction with the help of two different state-of-the-art senti- ment lexicons (as a gold standard).
