Affective Norms: Abstractness, Arousal, Imageability, Valence

This resource contains a collection of 350,000 German lemmatised words, rated on four psycholinguistic attributes. All ratings were obtained via a supervised learning algorithm that automatically calculates a numerical rating for each word and each affective attribute.

We applied the algorithm to four different rating types: abstractness, arousal, imageability and valence:

The data are freely available for education, research and other non-commercial purposes. See here on how to obtain the data.
