Abstract: Sarcasm is usually used by people to either tease/irritate others or simply for comic purposes. The presence of sarcasm becomes certain as it is difficult to be identified by basic sentiment analysis method. Sarcasm detection is addressed with various rule-based methods, statistical approaches, and classifiers in machine learning , most of these are introduced to identify sarcasm in text written in English as it is a popular language on the internet. Although the groundwork done on sarcasm detection on various Indian languages like Telugu is limited. Hence, this paper presents a Deep learning model based on neural networks to detect sarcasm in Telugu news headlines taken from various websites . The proposed model comprises of Convolutional Neural Networks(CNN) and next a Long short-term memory(LSTM) Network which is a modified version of Recurrent neural networks (RNN) and lastly a fully connected dense layer is added to classify the sentiments into sarcastic and non-sarcastic. A pre-trained word embeddings GloVe are used in the model
