Were Romans Positive or Negative People? | by Abhishek Verma | Nov, 2020

A special mention to this article’s inspiration: livid.

All in all, this looks like a well-rounded set with words from every walk of life. Let’s see what sentiment analysis says about it.

First of all, what is Sentiment Analysis? Let’s define that.

The assignment of a polarity (negative, positive, or neutral) for a given sentence(s) or phrase, or word.

Usually, you would do Sentiment Analysis on a set of sentences e.g., tweets, customer reviews etc. It is seldom done on words (but, the sentiment of a word is derived from the context it is used in).

Yes, it does. Romans and many of us today are following Stoicism, the neutral path. The neutral path that Romans followed, even shows even if you try to create a disparate connection such as this.
