Even though considerable attention has been given to the polarity of words (positive and negative) and the creation of large polarity lexicons, research in emotion analysis has had to rely on limited and small emotion lexicons. [...] Key Result We conducted experiments on how to formulate the emotion-annotation questions, and show that asking if a term is associated with an emotion leads to markedly higher interannotator agreement than that obtained by asking if a term evokes an emotion.Expand
A Multivalued Emotion Lexicon Created and Evaluated by the Crowd
TLDR
This work proposes an automated workflow for creating and evaluating a multi-valued emotion lexicon created and evaluated through crowdsourcing and compares the obtained lexicon with established lexicons and appoint expert English Linguists to assess crowd peer-evaluations. Expand
GoodNewsEveryone: A Corpus of News Headlines Annotated with Emotions, Semantic Roles, and Reader Perception
TLDR
A dataset of 5000 English news headlines annotated via crowdsourcing with their associated emotions, the corresponding emotion experiencers and textual cues, related emotion causes and targets, as well as the reader’s perception of the emotion of the headline is released. Expand
Lexicon Generation for Emotion Detection from Text
TLDR
Empirical evaluation confirms that UMM generated emotion language models (topics) have significantly lower perplexity compared to those from state-of-the-art generative models like supervised Latent Dirichlet Allocation (sLDA). Expand
Crowdsourcing and Validating Event-focused Emotion Corpora for German and English
TLDR
It is shown that transferring an emotion classification model from the original English ISEAR to the German crowdsourced deISEAR via machine translation does not, on average, cause a performance drop. Expand
Inducing Affective Lexical Semantics in Historical Language
TLDR
It is found that limiting the training set to words of supposedly stable emotional meaning does in fact decrease performance, rather than boosting it, and this contribution thus elaborates algorithmic and experimental results which form the basis of some of the later publications. Expand
Learning and Evaluating Emotion Lexicons for 91 Languages
TLDR
This work introduces a methodology for creating almost arbitrarily large emotion lexicons for any target language, and finds that it produces results in line with state-of-the-art monolingual approaches to lexicon creation and even surpasses human reliability for some languages and variables. Expand
Domain-specific lexicon generation for emotion detection from text
TLDR
This thesis demonstrates how labelled and weakly-labelled emotional documents can be harnessed to learn word-emotion lexicons that can account for dynamic and domain-specific emotional vocabulary, and proposes hybrid text representations for emotion classification that use the knowledge of lexicon based features in conjunction with other representations such as n-grams, part-of-speech and sentiment information. Expand
Depeche Mood: a Lexicon for Emotion Analysis from Crowd Annotated News
TLDR
This paper presents a novel approach for extracting - in a totally automated way - a high-coverage and high-precision lexicon of roughly 37 thousand terms annotated with emotion scores, called DepecheMood, which exploits in an original way 'crowd-sourced' affective annotation implicitly provided by readers of news articles from rappler.com. Expand
Crowdsourcing-based Annotation of Emotions in Filipino and English Tweets
TLDR
A corpus of tweets whose predominant emotions have been manually annotated by means of crowdsourcing is built in order to foster the development of emotion analysis methods based on advanced Filipino and English NLP. Expand
FEEL: a French Expanded Emotion Lexicon
TLDR
The elaboration and the evaluation of a new French lexicon considering both polarity and emotion, based on the semi-automatic translation and expansion to synonyms of the English NRC Word Emotion Association Lexicon (NRC-EmoLex). Expand

Emotions Evoked by Common Words and Phrases: Using Mechanical Turk to Create an Emotion Lexicon
TLDR
This paper shows how to create a high-quality, moderate-sized emotion lexicon using Mechanical Turk, and identifies which emotions tend to be evoked simultaneously by the same term and shows that certain emotions indeed go hand in hand. Expand
Generating High-Coverage Semantic Orientation Lexicons From Overtly Marked Words and a Thesaurus
TLDR
This work proposes a simple approach to generate a high-coverage semantic orientation lexicon, which includes both individual words and multi-word expressions, using only a Roget-like thesaurus and a handful of affixes and has properties that support the Polyanna Hypothesis. Expand
Tracking Sentiment in Mail: How Genders Differ on Emotional Axes
TLDR
This paper shows how sentiment analysis can be used in tandem with effective visualizations to quantify and track emotions in many types of mail, and creates a large word--emotion association lexicon by crowdsourcing and shows that there are marked differences across genders in how they use emotion words in work-place email. Expand
Compositionality Principle in Recognition of Fine-Grained Emotions from Text
TLDR
The evaluation of the Affect Analysis Model algorithm showed promising results regarding its capability to accurately recognize affective information in text from an existing corpus of personal blog posts. Expand
Recognising Affect in Text using Pointwise-Mutual Information
TLDR
Experiments conducted to evaluate an algorithm that attempts to automatically recognise emotions (affect) in written language indicate that the method is making slightly informed choices, and could be useful as part of a holistic approach to recognising the affect represented in text. Expand
Identifying Expressions of Emotion in Text
TLDR
An emotion annotation task of identifying emotion category, emotion intensity and the words/phrases that indicate emotion in text is described and results of an annotation agreement study on a corpus of blog posts are presented. Expand
Emotions from Text: Machine Learning for Text-based Emotion Prediction
TLDR
This paper explores the text-based emotion prediction problem empirically, using supervised machine learning with the SNoW learning architecture to classify the emotional affinity of sentences in the narrative domain of children's fairy tales, for subsequent usage in appropriate expressive rendering of text-to-speech synthesis. Expand
Cheap and Fast – But is it Good? Evaluating Non-Expert Annotations for Natural Language Tasks
TLDR
This work explores the use of Amazon's Mechanical Turk system, a significantly cheaper and faster method for collecting annotations from a broad base of paid non-expert contributors over the Web, and proposes a technique for bias correction that significantly improves annotation quality on two tasks. Expand
A model of textual affect sensing using real-world knowledge
TLDR
This paper demonstrates a new approach, using large-scale real-world knowledge about the inherent affective nature of everyday situations to classify sentences into "basic" emotion categories, and suggests that the approach is robust enough to enable plausible affective text user interfaces. Expand
Sentiment Analysis of Figurative Language using a Word Sense Disambiguation Approach
TLDR
Evaluation results using the corpus of the Aective Text task of SemEval’07, and a comparison with other state-of-the-art methods are presented, showing that the proposed method provides promising results, and positive evidence supporting the conjecture: figurative language conveys sentiment. Expand
