[Objective] This study aims to construct a domain sentiment lexicon by discovering unrecognized sentiment words from user-generated contents on Chinese social media to apply it to automotive comments sentiment analysis. [Methods] First, words in HowNet are selected as the seeds, and PMI and Word2Vec algorithm are used to calculate the sentiment polarity of the candidates respectively on real automative corpus. Then the results of the two discriminations are judged synthetically according to the ensemble rules. Finally the proposed method was shown effective by the comparison of the sentiment classification experiments. [Results] The accuracy rate of the lexicon constructed according to proposed method is 21.6% higher than that of HowNet. The lexicon constructed by PMI and Word2Vec respectively increase 3.7% and 2.1%. Meanwhile the number of positive and negative emotional words are greatly increased. [Limitations] The source of corpus is single, and it has certain limitations in guiding other fields. [Conclusions] The sentiment lexicon constructed by this method can be applied to sentiment analysis of social media texts effectively.
