Towards a Unified Framework for Emotion Analysis

Sven Buechel, Luise Modersohn, Udo Hahn

We present EmoCoder, a modular encoder-decoder architecture that generalizes emotion analysis over different tasks (sentence-level, word-level, label-to-label mapping), domains (natural languages and their registers), and label formats (e.g., polarity classes, basic emotions, and affective dimensions). Experiments on 14 datasets indicate that EmoCoder learns an interpretable language-independent representation of emotions, allows seamless absorption of state-of-the-art models, and maintains strong prediction quality, even when tested on unseen combinations of domains and label formats.
