Perception de la colère dans un corpus de français spontané par des apprenants portugais et tchèques
Sophie de Abreu, Catherine Mathon, Daniela Perekopska.

The aim of this paper is to show how prosody can provide a sufficient amount of information which allows recognizing the emotion of anger in a French spontaneous corpus for foreign learners of French. We present the results of a perception test carried on two groups of foreign learners of French, Portuguese and Czech. They had to listen to French sentences and evaluate the presence, or lack thereof, and the degree of anger in these sentences. We chose to use a real spontaneous corpus in order to keep the intonation of emotions in French intact. The semantic content was neutralised to put aside the information given by the content.
