With the number of reviews growing every day, it has become more important for both consumers and producers to gather the information that these reviews contain in an effective way. For this, a well performing feature extraction method is needed. In this paper we focus on detecting explicit features. For this purpose, we use grammatical relations between words in combination with baseline statistics of words as found in the review text. Compared to three investigated existing methods for explicit feature detection, our method significantly improves the F1-measure on three publicly available data sets.
