How do words allow us to understand these obscure objects that are our emotions? 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.

L’émotion dans le discours : à la recherche du profil discursif de stupeur et de jalousie**
Iva Novakova & Julie Sorba*
This chapter proposes a systematic-functional approach for analyzing the interactions between the syntactic, lexical, textual and enunciative profiles of the nouns of emotion stupeur (‘astonishment’) and jalousie (‘jealousy’) and their discursive profiles at sentence- and text-level. The textual sequences come from the data base (100 M. of words) of the EMOLEX project. We show that stupeur et jalousie generate different discursive scripts and text patterns, depending on their specific semantic features, which confirms the assumption of predictability of their textual environment (Blumenthal 2002; Hoey 2005).
