Affect sensing using pure lexical means is a problem that has been standing in the centre of attention of research community for a very long time and there exist promising approaches for solving this problem. The questions that have been investigated so far refer to the emotional meaning of a text is and its computation. Although the answers to these questions are certainly important, it is probably too premature to provide them without knowing differences between corpora used for lexical affect sensing. This contribution provides a comparison of two emotional textual corpora – a carefully built and worded movie review corpus and the spontaneous SAL corpus – and presents features for the classification of affective utterances.
