Research in Psychology have proposed frameworks that map emotion concepts with sentiment concepts. In this paper we study this mapping from a computational modelling perspective with a view to establish the role of an emotion-rich corpus for lexicon-based sentiment analysis. We propose two different methods which harness an emotion-labelled corpus of tweets to learn world-level numerical quantification of sentiment strengths over a positive to negative spectrum. The proposed methods model the emotion corpus using a generative unigram mixture model (UMM), combined with the emotion-sentiment mapping proposed in Psychology  for automated generation of sentiment lexicons. Sentiment analsysis experiments on benchmark Twitter data sets confirm the equality of our proposed lexicons. Further a comparative analysis with standard sentiment lexicons suggest that the proposed lexicons lead to a significantly better performance in both sentimentclassification and sentiment intensity prediction tasks.
