Analysis of Sensory Language in Social Media

More and more interactive computing applications are entering the market and many of these applications rely on natural language processing to interface with humans. In order to create a positive interaction between computers and humans, a good understanding of modern language, human perception, and sensory language is necessary. We use all of these things in everyday life. For example, a tweet can convey happiness, sadness, horror, or glee through the sensory words it uses. Effective communication can be fostered by analyzing the sensory language we use in social media texts. In this project, the student will have the chance to learn natural language processing and linguistics skills. They will analyze the semantic sensory space of different social media platforms to help researchers facilitate successful conversational human-machine interaction.
