English Affect Word-List
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
I am looking for a resonably comprehensive list of English words,
classified by affect (i.e. sentiment). While the connotations carried by
words are surely complex, and context dependent, I would think that the
word ''fireman'' has predominantly positive connotations, while
''sorcerer'' has predominantly negative connotations.
Preferably the list would included nouns and verbs, but a list of adverbs
and adjectives would be very useful too. Lists in Chinese an German would
also be of interest, if such a thing is freely available.
Will gratefully receive any suggestions, and will post summary,
