I would differentiate between sentiment, opinion, reputation etc. not using a lexicon but orientate much more towards a general and intuitive psychological disposition. I remember it was a critical question in my research when I was looking for a corpus with strictly emotional texts to perform opinion mining. However, since there are only few of emotional corpora I needed another solution. Hence, I decided to use non-emotional corpora if I can believably map non-emotional details onto emotional labeling. For instance, I chose a corpus with product reviews that are labeled according to technical details such as camera speed etc. and map this labeling onto a customer's satisfaction with a product that is in my opinion reflects emotional labeling.
