Abstract

The shift of consumers' attitudes caused by public health emergencies can be reflected in online reviews. This study applies the word embedding-based methods and sentiment propensity analysis to mine tourism online reviews. Specifically, we obtain the comprehensive vector of each review, which consists of the word vectors in the review word embedding, and evaluate the changes in tourists' emotional tendencies in the context of public health emergencies (taking COVID-19 as an example). The empirical results verify the effectiveness of the word embedding-based methods in identifying attitude shift and confirm the divergent effect of emotional valence in predicting the usefulness of tourism online reviews.
