Abstract(in English) In this paper, we have analyzed emotions perceived from speech by psychological experiments. In the experiments, subjects were asked to listen randomly presented speech vocalized with emotions (Neutral, Aoger, Sadness, Joy, Surprise, Disgust), and select perceived one. The rate at which the emotion intended by speaker coincided with that perceived by listener was 51.5%. Especially, The coincidence rate of 'Sadness' was high, but that of 'Joy' was low. As the result of analizing speeches for which more than half of listeners could perceive speaker's emotion, the rate which the speaker's emotions agreed with listener's ones was 73%. Then this value would be target of an artificial system that estimates emotions from speech. We have found characteristics dependent on emotions: it was difficult to distinguish between 'Anger' and 'Disgust'; it was easy to identify emotions about 'Anger' or 'Joy' from speech of word whose meaning is very similar to the emotion. Furthermore, humans' judgement on emotion seems to be less dependent on experiment date.
