A dictionary of affect in language iii. analysis of two biblical and two secular passages


, : A dictionary of affect in language iii. analysis of two biblical and two secular passages. Perceptual and Motor Skills 62(1): 127-132

The Dictionary of Affect in Language which provides Evaluation (Pleasantness) and Activation (Arousal) scores for 4500 words was used to score two biblical and two secular passages of text. Significant differences of several kinds were evident in the results: Psalm 23 (one of the biblical passages), for example, had the highest Evaluation mean, while a sample of detective fiction produced the lowest Activation mean. Conclusions are phrased in terms of the usefulness of the dictionary in the scoring of affective tone for existing passages of literature.
