Emotional Text analyser

E-mail Print
The component makes use of linguistic information relevant for lexical affect sensing to recognize emotions from text. Two different engines are used: a semantic and a statistic one, which can be also combined in future releases of the component to enhance recognition rates:
  • The statistical engine does not make any special demands to hardware or environment: words are essentially used as features for a statistical text analyzer. It identifies expressed opinions in long texts: watch the explanatory video.
  • In contrast, the semantic analyzer analyses grammatically correct sentences. It identifies expressed affect in short texts: watch the explanatory video

Availability of the component: Reference contact is Alexander Osherenko of University of Augsburg.
Notes: an executable of EmoText can be made available upon request.

Besides testing, the Emotional Text Analyser component is used in CALLAS Scientific Showcases:
