There is plenty of evidence that emotion analysis has many valuable applications. In this study a blog emotion corpus is con- structed for Chinese emotional expression analysis. This corpus contains manual an- notation of eight emotional categories (ex- pect, joy, love, surprise, anxiety, sorrow, angry and hate), emotion intensity, emo- tion holder/target, emotional word/phrase, degree word, negative word, conjunction, rhetoric, punctuation and other linguistic expressions that indicate emotion. An- notation agreement analyses for emotion classes and emotional words and phrases are described. Then, using this corpus, we explore emotion expressions in Chi- nese and present the analyses on them.
