Sammendrag

This paper investigates the effect of various types of linguistic features (lexical, syntactic and semantic) for training classifiers to detect threats of violence in a corpus of YouTube comments. Our results show that combina- tions of lexical features outperform the use of more complex syntactic and semantic features for this task.
