Abstract: A hedge is a linguistic device used to avoid using a categorical sentence. Hedges can be used to determine whether a sentence is factual by merely regarding a sentence containing hedges as non-factual. In this paper, we perform a comparative experiment of various classification methods for hedge detection. Among four different classification methods, we observe that SVM shows the best performance and that the SVM-based method finally outperforms the best system in the CoNLL2010-ST task. © 2011 Springer-Verlag.
