Les émotions dans le discours- Emotions in Discourse

Edited By 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.
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’affect et les émotions dans la construction du discours argumenté

Viviane Arigne*


This study deals with a syntactic construction of contemporary English in which the lexical semantics of negative evaluative adjectives is used as a basis for discourse organization. Meditative-polemic should occurs in both emotive and formal argumentative contexts. In the latter case, the emotive negative basis is exploited within a pragmatic and discursive framework which is apt to open a space for debate wherein conflicts are anticipated and discourse cohesion ensured. Markers such as quite, only and after all are analyzed as marks of the discursive memory of an underlying negative value, which is confirmed by the analysis of textual construction.
