In recent years, affective computing has become a research hotspot in the area of natural language processing and Chinese emotion recognition is an important constituent. This paper proposes a method of Chinese emotion recognition based on three-way decisions. Given the emotion dictionary constructed firstly, the grammatical information of sentences, topic features of texts and three-way decisions are integrated and applied into Chinese emotion recognition, thus realizing the multi-label emotion recognition of sentences in Chinese texts. The results of experiments show that the method of Chinese emotion recognition, based on three-way decisions, has achieved excellent results in the emotion recognition of Chinese sentences.
