emotion word ontology, human-computer interaction, textual emotion detection


Emotion may be shown in a variety of ways, including voice, written texts, and facial expressions and movements. Emotion detection in text is essentially a content-based classification challenge that combines concepts from natural language processing and machine learning. This paper addresses textual data-based emotion identification algorithms and emotion detection.
