A Framework for Eliciting Emotional Speech: Capitalizing on the Actor’s Process

Hirschberg, Julia Bell; Enos, Frank

This paper offers an approach and a theoretical framework for eliciting emotional speech using actors. The framework is developed by connecting the goal-based model of emotion proposed by Abelson [1], the work of appraisal theorists, and an approach to the actor's technical process widely used in the professional theater and taught in modern conservatories. In doing so, we hope to address some of the difficulties currently encountered in the use of acted speech in emotion research.
