An NLTK interface for SentiWordNet

SentiWordNet is a lexical resource for opinion mining.
SentiWordNet assigns to each synset of WordNet three
sentiment scores: positivity, negativity, and objectivity.

For details about SentiWordNet see:

    >>> from nltk.corpus import sentiwordnet as swn
    >>> print(swn.senti_synset('breakdown.n.03'))
    <breakdown.n.03: PosScore=0.0 NegScore=0.25>
    >>> list(swn.senti_synsets('slow'))
    [SentiSynset('decelerate.v.01'), SentiSynset('slow.v.02'),
    SentiSynset('slow.v.03'), SentiSynset('slow.a.01'),
    SentiSynset('slow.a.02'), SentiSynset('dense.s.04'),
    SentiSynset('slow.a.04'), SentiSynset('boring.s.01'),
    SentiSynset('dull.s.08'), SentiSynset('slowly.r.01'),
    >>> happy = swn.senti_synsets('happy', 'a')
    >>> happy0 = list(happy)[0]
    >>> happy0.pos_score()
    >>> happy0.neg_score()
