We present the results of an experiment to assess the validity of prior polarities available in sentiment lexicons. We designed a ranking task that was elicited through pairwise comparisons and compared the results to those predicted by two popular sentiment lexicons. We find that the experiment results show a moderate level of agreement between the lexicons and human judgments.
