In this paper, we describe the development and performance of the supervised system UMCC_DLSI-(SA). This system uses corpora where phrases are annotated as Positive, Negative, Objective, and Neutral, to achieve new sentiment resources involving word dictionaries with their associated polarity. As a result, new sentiment inventories are obtained and applied in conjunction with detected informal patterns, to tackle the challenges posted in Task 2b of the Semeval- 2013 competition. Assessing the effectiveness of our application in sentiment classification, we obtained a 69% F-Measure for neutral and an average of 43% F-Measure for positive and negative using Tweets and SMS messages.
