It discusses various emotional corpora (movie reviews, weblogs, product reviews, and natural-language dialogues) and describes different approaches to affect classification of their texts: a statistical approach that utilizes lexical, deictic, stylometric, and grammatical information; a semantic approach that relies on emotional dictionaries and on deep grammatical analysis; a hybrid approach that combines the statistical approach and the semantic approach. Furthermore, this thesis explores affect sensing using multimodal fusion that utilizes lexical and acoustic data. In conclusion, the thesis discusses significant contributions and describes future work.

In the first part of my thesis, I present a new design of DSTBC to achieve full rate transmission and channel decoupling property as in conventional space-time block code by using zero-padding (ZP). Several receiver techniques in frequency domain are studied for the signal detection of the proposed DSTBC. The extension from ZP to unique-word (UW) will be proposed in the second part. Exploiting the properties of the UW, I will present in the third part of my thesis a method of channel estimation for relay networks.
