I am pleased to announce that, in connection with the publication of the
Emotion Markup Language (http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/CR-emotionml-20120510/,
the W3C Multimodal Interaction Working Group (http://www.w3.org/2002/mmi/)
has also published "Vocabularies for EmotionML"
http://www.w3.org/TR/emotion-voc/.

This document provides a list of emotion vocabularies that can be used with
EmotionML to represent emotions and related states. EmotionML provides
mechanisms to represent emotions in terms of scientifically valid
descriptors: categories, dimensions, appraisals, and action tendencies.
Given the lack of agreement in the community, EmotionML does not provide a
single vocabulary of emotion terms, but gives users a choice to select the
most suitable emotion vocabulary in their annotations. In order to promote
interoperability, publicly defined vocabularies should be used where
possible and reasonable from the point of view of the target application.
The present document provides a number of emotion vocabularies that can be
used for this purpose.
Comments are welcome and should be sent to this list
(www-multimodal@w3.org).
 
 Best regards,

 Debbie Dahl
 W3C Multimodal Interaction Working Group Chair
