tract: In this system paper we present our contribution to the Constraint 2021 COVID-19 Fake News Detection Shared Task, which poses the challenge of classifying COVID-19 related social media posts as either fake or real. In our system, we address this challenge by applying classical machine learning algorithms together with several linguistic features, such as n-grams, readability, emotional tone and punctuation. In terms of pre-processing, we experiment with various steps like stop word removal, stemming/lemmatization, link removal and more. We find our best performing system to be based on a linear SVM, which obtains a weighted average F1 score of 95.19% on test data, which lands a place in the middle of the leaderboard (place 80 of 167).
