EmoFinder now accessible online

 

EmoFinder, a web-based search engine for Spanish word properties developed by researchers of the PCC group led by Isabel Fraga, is now accessible online at http://usc.es/pcc/emofinder.

This wonderful tool incorporates subjective word properties for 16,375 distinct words. Although it focuses particularly on normative ratings for emotional dimensions (e.g., valence and arousal) and discrete emotional categories (fear, disgust, anger, happiness, and sadness), it also makes available ratings for other word properties that are known to affect word processing (e.g., concreteness, familiarity, contextual availability, and age of acquisition).
