JIWC-Dictionary

We have constructed Japanese Inquiry and Word Count (JIWC) as a linguistic resource for qualitative analysis. JIWC contains highly frequent expressions related to seven emotions of “Sadness”, “Anxiety”, “Anger”, “Disgust”, “Trust”, “Surprise”, and “Joy”. In order to extract expressions with high frequency related to these emotions, we conduct crowdsourcing four times a year. We collect a large amount of episodes related to the previously mentioned emotions through the crowdsourcing and analyze them.
