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.

Émotions et scénarios : questionnements méthodologiques pour une approche discursive**
The chapter studies the way that emotional expressions function within scenarios in texts, and offers a methodological survey of tools facilitating the identification and interpretation of discursive scenarios related to pathos. The observables (the grammatical nature of the units, number, determination, intensity, aspect) and interpretative categories (communication scene, text structure, etc.) are tested on two corpora, educational reports and newspapers. A longitudinal approach accounts for the way that the scenarios have been implemented through the writing process in educational reports.
