Previously, the task was modeled as a sentence-level sentiment classification problem that treated aspect targets as a hint. Such approaches oversimplify the problem by averaging word embeddings when the aspect target is a multi-word sequence. In this paper, we formalize the problem from a different perspective, i.e., that sentiment at aspect target level should be the main focus. Due to the fact that written Chinese is very rich and complex, Chinese aspect targets can be studied at three different levels of granularity: radical, character and word. Thus, we propose to explicitly model the aspect target and conduct sentiment classification directly at the aspect target level via three granularities. Moreover, we study two fusion methods for such granularities in the task of Chinese aspect-level sentiment analysis. Experimental results on a multi-word aspect target subset from SemEval2014 and four Chinese review datasets validate our claims and show the improved performance of our model over the state of the art.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/139596||ISSN:||0950-7051||DOI:||10.1016/j.knosys.2018.02.034||Rights:||© 2018 Elsevier B.V.
