Dynamicity in Emotion Concepts


Edited By Paul Wilson

«Bringing together specialists from linguistics, psychology and philosophy, the book offers an exciting collection of papers assessing the conceptual representation of emotion and the conceptual relationship between emotion and language. The specific issues addressed include the analyses, based on corpus and cross-linguistic methodologies, of emotions such as pride, guilt, hope, despair, satisfaction, fear and anger in a number of languages, and how language shapes socialisation practices, such as in bilinguals. Finally, it provides good examples of the methods – from metaphor analysis to experimental studies – used to achieve a better understanding of the complexity and multi-dimensionality of the conceptualisation of emotion and the emotion-language relationship. Researchers and advanced students are likely to find this book an important reference work.» (Vanda L. Zammuner, University of Padova, Italy)
