The most important element in analyzing sentiment in text is to assign polarity to the opinion words. Polarity means the positive, negative or neutral state of the opinion words. They are many methods or ways in determining the polarity of an opinion words. One of the methods is using lexicon-based method. Lexicons are digital library of opinion words together with the polarity of the words. Basically, there are 3 methods in developing lexicon-based approach which is manual, dictionary-based and corpus-based. For Malay language there is no available sentiment lexicon and also very limited sources. Thus, in this study we present the automation lexicon generation for Malay language using the dictionary approach. The detail description of the automation lexicon generation for Malay language is discussed in this study.
