Abstract: The structure of momentary affect among Cantonese-speaking Chinese was explored by developing questionnaire scales in four response formats. Scales can be scored for dimensions defined by Feldman Barrett and Russell (1998), Thayer (1996), Larsen and Diener (1992), and Watson and Tellegen (1985). In a study of recalled affect (N̲ = 487), the newly translated scales were found to support all but Watson and Tellegen’s structural model originating from English. Results cross-validated well in a second sample (N̲ = 402). Affective dimensions were interrelated as found with English-speaking Canadians and they could be integrated into a two-dimensional bipolar space.
