Religious Hate Speech Detection for Arabic Tweets

This repo contains both training (train.csv) and testing (test.csv) datasets that are used in our paper. The training dataset contains 5,569 examples, while the testing dataset contains 567 examples. As per Twitter's Developer Policy, we are only allowed to publicaly share tweet ids along with its annotaion (1 = hate , 0 = not hate). Full tweets (except for those that have been deleted or made private) can be obtained by hydrating tweet ids using tools such as twarc.

We also provide three Arabic hate term lexicons. Each term is assigned a positive or a negative real-valued score. positive scores represent positive association with hate class, while negative scores reflect negative assocation with hate class.

  1. AraHate-PMI.csv: Hate scores were assigned based on the Pointwise Mutual Information (PMI) metric.
  2. AraHate-CHI.csv: Hate scores were calculated using the chi-square statistic.
  3. AraHate-BNS.csv: Hate scores were computed using the Bi-Normal Separation (BNS) method.

Finally, we provide a list of 356 Arabic stop words (stop_words.csv) accounting for both Dialectal Arabic and Modern Standard Arabic.
