Tecnolengua Lingmotif at EmoInt-2017: A lexicon-based approach

WS 2017  ·  Antonio Moreno-Ortiz ·

In this paper we describe Tecnolengua Group{'}s participation in the shared task on emotion intensity at WASSA 2017. We used the Lingmotif tool and a new, complementary tool, Lingmotif Learn, which we developed for this occasion... We based our intensity predictions for the four test datasets entirely on Lingmotif{'}s TSS (text sentiment score) feature. We also developed mechanisms for dealing with the idiosyncrasies of Twitter text. Results were comparatively poor, but the experience meant a good opportunity for us to identify issues in our score calculation for short texts, a genre for which the Lingmotif tool was not originally designed. read more
