This volume aims to enrich the current interdisciplinary theoretical
discussion of human emotions by presenting studies based on extensive
linguistic data from a wide range of languages of the world. Each
language-specific study gives detailed semantic descriptions of the
meanings of culturally salient emotion words and expressions, offering
fascinating insights into people's emotional lives in diverse cultures
including Amharic, Chinese, German, Japanese, Lao, Malay, Mbula, Polish
and Russian. The book is unique in its emphasis on empirical language
data, analysed in a framework free of ethnocentrism and not dependent
upon English emotion terms, but relying instead on independently
established conceptual universals. Students of languages and cultures,
psychology and cognition will find this volume a rich resource of
description and analysis of emotional meanings in cultural context.
