Abstract With the proliferation of online information sources, it hasbecome more and more difficult to judge the trustworthiness of a state-ment on the Web. Nevertheless, recent advances in natural languageprocessing allow us to analyze information more objectively according tocertain criteria - e.g. whether a proposition is factual or opinative, or eventhe authority or credibility of an author in a certain topic. In this paper,we formulated a ranking schema that can be employed in textual claimsfor speeding up the human fact-checking process. Our experiments haveshown that our proposed method statistically outperformed the base-line. Additionally, this work describes a multilingual data set of claimscollected from several fact-check websites, which was used to fine-tuningour model.
