Verbal Materials used to Measure Emotion in Text

Bradley, M. M., & Lang, P. J. (1999).  Affective norms for English words (ANEW): Instruction manual and affective ratings (Technical Report C-1).  The Center for Research in Psychophysiology, University of Florida. Retrieved from /everything/bradley1999a.pdf

In this document, the authors present the findings of a normative rating procedure used to build a resource of verbal materials called the Affective Norms for English Words (ANEW), which provides normative emotional (affective) ratings for a large quantity of English words. Each word was rated in terms of pleasure, arousal, and dominance to complement two existing resources: (a) the International Affective Picture System, which provides affective ratings for collection of pictures; and (b) International Affective Digital Sounds, which provides affective ratings for sound stimuli. Such resources aid in the examination of emotion and provide a replicable study component for researchers. After detailing the normative rating procedure including participant instructions, the majority of the document provides the actual ANEW resource itself, mostly in table format.
