This paper provides a description of the structure and goals of the database of Russian Language Affective (emotional) utterances. It also reports some preliminary results of an experimental phonetic analysis of the acoustic characteristics of emotional utterances (surprise, happiness, anger, sadness and fear) vs. neutral ones in Russian. The study utilizes 600 database utterances by 10 speakers. Special focus of the study is placed on interactions between prosody and syntactic patterns of utterances.
