I have completed a progress report on the treatise, which includes approx. 20 pages of introductory and background material, as well as a 'work carried out thus far' report. I have decided to look into combinatory categorial grammar as a way to disambiguate the deep semantic features of the text, and use these in my sentiment analysis. This is with the aid of James Curran's C&C Parser and Bos' Boxer. Looking forward, I plan to start coding the system and experimentation the first week of the holidays (28th June +). The system will be written in Python due to the large support it has for natural language parsing.
