About EmotioNL

On this page you can get access to the EmotioNL corpus: an emotion-annotated corpus of Dutch texts. It consists of 1,000 Dutch tweets and 1,000 captions from reality TV-shows, annotated with the categories anger, fear, joy, love, sadness and neutral, and scores (real-valued, between 0 and 1) for the emotional dimensions valence, arousal and dominance. The data collection and annotation procedure is described in the associated paper:
