Abstract: We describe an empirical approach to identifying the kind of task that an emotion recognition system could usefully address. Three levels of information are elicited a basic emotion vocabulary, a basic representation in evaluation-activation space of the meaning of each word, and a richer schema representation. The results confirm that an approach of this kind is feasible.
