The sentence-level subjectivity classification is a challenging task. This paper pinpoints some of its unique characteristics. It argues that these characteristics should be considered when extracting subjective or objective features from sentences. Through various sentence-level subjectivity classification experiments with numerous feature combinations, we found that balanced features for both subjective and objective sentences help to achieve balanced precision and recall for sentence subjectivity classification.
