Lexicon-based detection of emotion in different types of texts: Preliminary remarks

Hille Pajupuu, Krista Kerge, Rene Altrov


Paragraphs of four genres are analysed to detect their emotional colouring, while a lexicon-based approach of linguistic analysis is weighed against reader opinion. The aim is to find out the prospects of automatic detection of emotion in any text by using a very small lexicon of about 600 frequent emotion words.
