Computational Exploration of the Origin of Mood in Literary Texts
Emily Öhman | Riikka H. Rossi
Proceedings of the 2nd International Workshop on Natural Language Processing for Digital Humanities

This paper is a methodological exploration of the origin of mood in early modern and modern Finnish literary texts using computational methods. We discuss the pre-processing steps as well as the various natural language processing tools used to try to pinpoint where mood can be best detected in text. We also share several tools and resources developed during this process. Our early attempts suggest that overall mood can be computationally detected in the first three paragraphs of a book.
