FEEL is a French lexicon containing more than 14 000 distinct words expressing emotions and sentiments. It follows the Ekman basic two polarities and six emotions (Ekman, 1992). It has been created by automatically translating and expanding the English Emotional Lexicon NRC-Canada (Mohammad & Turney, 2013). The process has been supervised and validated manually by a human professional translator.
