As part of a larger project, this paper presents some of the work done regarding our proposal of an event-based analysis of emotion. We propose that an emotion is treated as a pivot event linking the events inducing (i.e. pre-events), and induced by (i.e. post-events), said emotion. Our study begins with the development of an emotion corpus annotated with pre-and post-events. We then provide a collocational pattern analysis as well as a linguistic analysis of the links between event structures and emotions in the text. The project goal is to develop a theory predicting the dependencies between emotions and events, based on linguistic cues in context.
