Onomatopoeic expressions are frequently used in Japanese but, as well as other types of subjective adjectival and adverbial expressions, their Kansei evaluative value, or their Kansei polarity, depends on genre and context and is difficult to describe, let alone their exact meaning. In this study, an automatic extraction method of Kansei polarities of Japanese onomatopoeic expressions according to genre and context is proposed. It uses the contrastive use of pair expressions with seemingly opposite Kansei polarities in different genres and contexts, and the results of our experiments indicate that our method is effective for better descriptions of onomatopoeic expressions.
