This paper describes ongoing work related to the analysis of spoken utterance transcripts and estimating the speaker’s attitude towards the whole dialogue on the basis of their opinions expressed by utterances. Using the standard technology used in sentiment analysis, we report promising results which can be linked to the conversational participants’ self-evaluation of their experience of the interaction.
