EmoSpell, a morphological and emotional word analyzer

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The analysis of sentiments, emotions, and opinions in texts is increasingly important in the current digital world. The existing lexicons with emotional annotations for the Portuguese language are oriented to polarities, classifying words as positive, negative, or neutral. To identify the emotional load intended by the author, it is necessary to also categorize the emotions expressed by individual words. EmoSpell is an extension of a morphological analyzer with semantic annotations of the emotional value of words. It uses Jspell as the morphological analyzer and a new dictionary with emotional annotations. This dictionary incorporates the lexical base EMOTAIX.PT, which classifies words based on three different levels of emotions—global, specific, and intermediate. This paper describes the generation of the EmoSpell dictionary using three sources: the Jspell Portuguese dictionary and the lexical bases EMOTAIX.PT and SentiLex-PT. Additionally, this paper details the Web application and Web service that exploit this dictionary. It also presents a validation of the proposed approach using a corpus of student texts with different emotional loads. The validation compares the analyses provided by EmoSpell with the mentioned emotional lexical bases on the ability to recognize emotional words and extract the dominant emotion from a text.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
One of the positive aspects of the digital revolution is the accessibility of an astonishing number of texts that are readily available for purposeful use and inspection. This profusion was paralleled by the spread of digital devices and the powerful developments of computing that made it possible to unobtrusively log text production as it happens, as well as to analyze both production and final texts with powerful analytic tools and techniques. HandSpy is one of such tools – it uses smartpens and sensors to collect handwriting data and several psychophysiological indexes; it also offers a website for visualization and collaborative analyses of texts. HandSpy is particularly suited to carry out real-time studies of writing and to perform textual analyses on the emotional content of texts. HandSpy is used worldwide by several research teams. Their published studies will be reviewed along with a discussion of HandSpy limitations, advantages and future developments.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
The bodily manifestations of the mind while writing have barely been studied. Expressive writing is a particular form of writing in which a person narrates a personal, deeply charged emotional event. Expressive writing is associated with a considerable number of health benefits. Despite these benefits, the mechanisms through which expressive writing operates is still poorly understood.
AIMS
In M-BW we sought to explore the writing, linguistic and psychophysiological, and emotion regulation correlates of expressive writing.
METHOD
We conducted two studies in which participants were randomly assigned to one of two groups, the expressive writing group (traumatic event) or the control group (daily routine). During writing we recorded writing in real-time, EDA and ECG. In the first study, participants wrote using first person singular, and in the second study, the third person pronoun.
RESULTS
Results from both studies suggest that the expressive writing paradigm has specific writing, linguistic and psychophysiological correlates. In the first study the expressive group showed longer pauses, different function words’ usage and higher sympathovagal balance, as opposed to control. In the second study, the expressive group showed again different usage of function words and higher heart rate, as compared to control.
CONCLUSIONS
Results from both studies suggest that different expressive writing instructions lead to specific writing, linguistic and psychophysiological correlates. These findings are a step forward in the study of expressive writing as a useful exercise for improving physical and psychological well-being, specifically as an opportunity for emotion regulation.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
INTRODUCTION:
Numerous studies have used the expressive writing task (writing about a personally upsetting experience) and have shown benefits on physical and mental health in various pathologies. These pathologies include eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and cancer.
AIM:
Despite the awareness of these positive health outcomes, the underlying relationship between expressive writing and health is yet to be understood. By understanding this relationship, we can develop expressive writing as a complementary treatment method in disease.
METHODS:
Participants were first-year university students at the University of Porto (n = 57). Each participant was randomly assigned to one of two groups. They either described their daily routine (control group) or a traumatic experience (expressive writing group) for 15 minutes. During the writing task electrocardiogram (ECG) data was recorded. The recorded ECG was divided into five, 5-minute parts (1’ baseline; 3’ writing; 1’ post-writing). Data analysis was conducted by calculating three heart rate variability measures (HRV): SDNN, RMSSD, and LF/HF ratio, representing respectively, overall HRV, parasympathetically mediated HRV and sympathovagal balance. Writing measures were calculated using HandSpy 2.3, to assess for writing processes correlates of expressive writing.
RESULTS:
Results showed that HRV seems to increase from the beginning to the end of the task, regardless of the assigned group, with the expressive group showing significantly higher sympathetically mediated HRV.
CONCLUSION:
These findings suggest that expressive writing has a physical effect on the body through cardiovascular changes, with HRV patterns differing significantly between groups. This could indicate that emotional regulation and coping mechanisms are active while writing about a personally upsetting experience, but not during a neutral writing task.

Real-time physiological and writing correlates of expressive writing
Publication year: Accepted
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
Concealing memories and emotions associated with a traumatic event seems to have negative effects on health. Re-enacting those events through writing is an opportunity to disclosure such memories and emotions, and likely for emotion regulation. To study this, 57 university students were randomly assigned to one of two groups. They either completed an expressive writing or a neutral writing task. Real-time writing and psychophysiological data were recorded throughout the experiment to examine writing dynamics associated with emotion regulation and its psychophysiological correlates (EDA and ECG measures). Results showed that the expressive group paused for longer than the control group denotating a positive and medium effect size (?p
2 = .10). Furthermore, during and after writing the expressive group showed a higher LF/ HF ratio than the control group, evidencing a positive and large effect size (?p 2 = .22). These real-time findings are interpreted as signs of emotion regulation happening during writing.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Numerous studies have shown the health benefits of expressive writing. Despite available knowledge about these positive health outcomes, the underlying relationship between expressive writing and health is yet to be understood. By analyzing heart rate variability (HRV) patterns, measures of writing processes and immediate emotional reaction to the task, we might have a better understanding on how disclosure through writing can lead to better emotional regulation strategies, and consequently mental health. Participants were randomly assigned to one of two groups completing either an emotional writing task (traumatic experience) or a neutral writing task (n = 57). On-line psychophysiological (HRV) and writing data were recorded throughout the experiment (10 min. baseline; 15 min. writing; 5 min. post-writing). Results show that HRV increased from the beginning to the end of the task, regardless of the assigned group, but the expressive group showed higher sympathetically mediated HRV. Interestingly, the expressive group showed a writing style marked by significantly longer pauses, indicating that the task was more demanding that a simple, neutral writing task. This supports the hypothesis that the expressive group might had to allocate more attention to the emotions generated by the task than the control group. These findings seem to suggest that emotional regulation and coping mechanisms are active while writing about a personally upsetting experience, but not during a neutral writing task.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Textual analysis is important for the study of writing and can provide information about its author. With technological development, several programs have emerged that seek to increase reliability and automate linguistic analysis. HandSpy was developed within the M-BW project, with its main purpose being the handwriting analysis in real time but including other features such as emotional words identification. The objective of this work was to develop the textual analysis module of HandSpy, surveying, implementing and testing five measures: frequency analysis; average word length; lexical density; lexical diversity; and density of propositional ideas. To test each of the indexes that constitute this module, data from two studies conducted under the aforementioned project was used. The participants (n = 114) were randomly distributed into four groups, characterized by two
factors: psychological distancing; and the expressive writing paradigm. The results indicated that participants who wrote about traumatic events used a greater variety of functional words and lengthier words. In turn, participants who described a daily routine wrote larger content words and demonstrated greater lexical richness. Psychological distancing seems to have influenced the length of content words and the average length of functional words, with the latter being marginally greater when the participants wrote about the traumatic event in the first person.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Traumatic events in life are typically accompanied by concealed emotions. Writing about traumas can release these emotions and help to regulate them. Despite available knowledge about the effect of expressive writing on health and emotion regulation, principal autonomic influence of expressive writing on emotions, physical changes and individual differences are not clear yet. By analyzing electrodermal activity (EDA) throughout writing, we studied this research topic. To study correlations between expressive writing, bodily changes and individual differences, 57 first year university students were randomly assigned to a control or expressive group, completing a neutral or emotional writing task, respectively. Real-time psychophysiological data was recorded during writing (5 min. baseline; 15 min. writing task; 5 min. post-writing), to examine the psychophysiological and emotional changes. Results showed that participants in the expressive group had higher negative affect compared to the control group after finishing the task. Also, that upon starting the writing task and after finishing it (post-writing), regardless of the writing topic (neutral or expressive), EDA rose. Reward-seeking is a possible reason for the post-writing rise of EDA in both groups.
Additionally, results revealed that extroverts showed lower EDA compared to introverts 5 minutes after starting the writing task likely due to habituation. These findings shed light on the autonomic influences during writing and its effect on emotions, and also, how these can be influenced by individual differences in personality.
