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.

Adverbes anglais en -ly : attitudes émotionnelles et intersubjectivité en contexte1

Raluca Nita*


In this chapter, we study the English -ly adverbs expressing emotional states by characterizing them semantically and in their syntactic distribution with the verbs according to corpus-based data. The main semantic feature of these adverbs is their ambivalence deriving from their syntax and their contextual usage. In their high distribution with direct speech declarative verbs, they prove to be markers of intersubjectivity, a feature which ensures their combination with a large and heterogeneous range of verbs, such as verbs of perception, of movement, of position, etc.
