A couple of comments on your design:
(1) The design looks fine. It will be singular for a within-subject design.
(2) You can only evaluate the statistics for GTE or TE effects because this is a within-subject design because the error generated from this model corresponds to this effect. For more details see previous emails from Tom Nichols and myself. The other thing to remember about this model is that the assumption is that levels of each factor have equal variance, which I think is safe in a 2x2 within-subject designs.

From the manual, I need to replace EV 8-23 with one column for all, right?
But I found some informatin from FSL forum, which said:
Replace EV4 with a set of EVs, one for each
subject ID, in the manner of the paired t-test for a 2*2 design.
In our design, time points and emotion words are within fatctors,
group is beween factors, so it is a mixed design. Do I still need to use the design
mattrix listed in the manual to replace gloabal mean as one column?
