Meeting Description: Even though emotion terms have been widely studied in previous research a number of issues haven’t been addressed so far. The study of emotion within the frame of different theoretical models (Generative Theory, Lexical-Functional Theory, Meaning-Text Theory, Lexicon-Grammar Theory) has mainly focused on the analysis of semantic and syntactic properties of nominal or verbal predicates. Cognitive linguistics, on the other hand, has proposed a solid theory for the analysis of metaphors in emotion vocabulary. Finally sentiment analysis in written texts is a current trend and challenge in the area of Language Technology.

The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the state-of-the art in the study of emotions and to contribute to the ongoing research. The workshop intends to bring researchers together who work in different parts of the relevant disciplines (syntax, semantics, computational linguistics, corpus linguistics, psycholinguistics, cognitive linguistics), so viewpoints can be shared and new ideas stimulated. It also aims to bring the most recent viewpoints and insights together, and to work on advancing the field of emotion study.
