Emotion expression is an essential function for daily life that can be severely affected some psychological disorders. In this paper we identified seven emotional states anger,surprise,sadness ,happiness,fear,disgust and neutral.The definition of parameters is a crucial step in the development of a system for emotion analysis.The 15 explored features are energy intensity,pitch,standard deviation,jitter,shimmer,autocorrelation,noise to harmonic ration,harmonic to noise ration,energy entropy
