Linguistic Resources for Study of Emotion
The present work constitutes a corpus-based study on emotion analysis. It provides a systematic analysis of authentic examples of Chinese from a variety of genres. Instead of resorting to introspective examples, corpus data represent naturally occurring data. By observing the text in the corpus with the help of data collection tools, relevant generalizations can be made. This chapter discusses the research methodology in terms of the various existing tools and resources adopted in the current work as well as the development of the Chinese emotion corpus serving as the main data for the current work.
