I am looking for scholarly, peer-reviewed articles that discuss natural language processing (NLP) involving chat or text messaging lingo/acronyms and the affect of chat participants based on language and emoticons. Anyone have a good recommendation?
I am already familiar with the recent work involving using Twitter to assess the general mood of society as a means of predicting the stock market. They used the Google-Profile of Mood States (GPOMS) that measures mood as Calm, Alert, Sure, Vital, Kind, or Happy. I am looking for other examples that assess general affect, ideally by applying more scientific psychometric tests to NLP.
I am not trying to use the data for prediction. I am seeking to use machine learning algorithms to classify/categorize conversations.
