Emotions in code-switching text can be expressed in either monolingual or bilingual forms. However, relatively little research has emphasized on code-switching text. In this paper, we propose a Bilingual Attention Network (BAN) model to aggregate the monolingual and bilingual informative words to form vectors from the document representation, and integrate the attention vectors to predict the emotion. The experiments show that the effectiveness of the proposed model. Visualization of the attention layers illustrates that the model selects qualitatively informative words.

This paper presents the development of a Chinese event-based emotion corpus. It specifically describes the corpus design, collection and annotation. The proposed annotation scheme provides a consistent way of identifying some emotion-associated events (namely pre-events and post-events). Corpus data show that there are significant interactions between emotions and pre-events as well as that of between emotion and post-events. We believe that emotion as a pivot event underlies an innovative approach towards a linguistic model of emotion as well as automatic emotion detection and classification.
