In this paper we will present our ongoing project to build and evaluate a sentiment lexicon for Swedish. Our main resource is SALDO, a lexical resource of modern Swedish developed at Språkbanken, University of Gothenburg. Using a semi-supervised approach, we expand a manually chosen set of six core words using parent-child relations based on the semantic network structure of SALDO. At its current stage the lexicon consists of 175 seeds, 633 children, and 1319 grandchildren.
