Les émotions dans le discours- Emotions in Discourse

Peter Blumenthal, Iva Novakova and Dirk Siepmann

Comment les mots permettent-ils d’appréhender ces objets obscurs que sont nos emotions ? Diverses langues européennes offrent-elles les mêmes perspectives sur cette réalité mouvante, explorée aussi par plusieurs disciplines appliquées (didactique, lexicographie, traitement automatique des langues) ? Le volume tente de répondre à ces questions en mettant en relief certaines innovations théoriques et méthodologiques en sémantique lexicale et en analyse du discours.

Do various European languages offer the same perspective on this changing reality, when explored by several applied disciplines (language teaching, lexicography, natural language processing)? This volume offers answers by highlighting theoretical and methodological innovations in lexical semantics and discourse analysis.

Le choix de l’intensifieur verbal des noms d’émotions : facteurs linguistico-cognitifs et facteurs discursifs

Ewa Pilecka*

Abstract

Verbo-nominal intensifying constructions built according to the scheme V de N (mourir d’ennui, rougir de colère, siffler d’admiration, trembler de peur…) are preferential combinations of « internal experience nouns » (essentially nouns of emotions) and verbs referring to an observable manifestation of emotions. As each noun of emotion can be intensified by several verbs, and each intensifying verb can accompany several nouns, it is interesting to see which kind of cognitive and linguistic factors determine the choice of collocates (especially the verbal ones). A corpus-driven study of a large number of examples shows that the principle of textual isotope is the basis of speaker’s choices. The author presents different aspects of this phenomenon in discourse.
