Emotion detection is the process of extracting emotion from human expression. Emotions may be expressed by facial expression, speech and even written text. The Affective Norms for English Words (ANEW) is a corpus that has been used in researches involving emotion detection. ANEW provides the score of valence, arousal, and dominance for each word. However, no information about the word definition is provided in ANEW. The goal of this research is to identify the correct definition of every word in ANEW as additional informations to improve its accuracy.
