The NRC Emotion Lexicon was originally built by Saif M. Mohammad and Peter D. Turney through crowdsourcing. The NRC was created in order to assist with emotion analysis as other emotion lexicons were smaller at the time. In order to be able to fix this problem, Saif crowdsourced a huge collection of terms obtained from sources like the Macquarie Thesaurus, Global Inquirer, and the WordNet Affect Lexicon. From this, human annotation was done through Amazon's Mechanical Turk and thus, the NRC Lexicon was validated and distributed.
