Message 2: Second language acquisition and emotions

Date: Wed, 17 Jul 2002 15:46:16 +0000
From: Jean-Marc Dewaele <>
Subject: Second language acquisition and emotions

Dear friends and colleagues,

We are looking for anyone willing to contribute to the Panel 'Second
language acquisition and emotions' which we are convening at AAAL2003
(March 22-25) For more information see

Until recently investigations of language and emotions in a variety of
fields - except for psychoanalysis and psychological counseling -
excluded bilingual individuals. Memoirs of bilingual individuals
suggest that some of their languages may be perceived as more
emotional than others (Pavlenko, 1998). A number of recent studies
have looked at how bilinguals talk about emotions in their two
languages. Pavlenko (2002a,b) investigated discursive construction of
emotions in the two languages of Russian-English bilinguals and found
evidence that the process of second language socialization resulted in
the conceptual restructuring of emotion categories of her adult
language learners. Dewaele & Pavlenko (2002), investigated the use of
emotion vocabulary in the advanced French interlanguage of Dutch L1
speakers and in the advanced English interlanguage Russian L1
speakers. The results demonstrate that proficiency, extraversion, type
of linguistic material and gender have an effect!
 on the use of emotion words.

interlanguage. Language Learning 52, 2, 265-324.

English. Pragmatics and Cognition, 10, 201-236.

We intend to present preliminary findings based on the
webquestionnaire with 34 questions on bilingualism and emotions which
was recently advertised on Linguistlist and which we invite you to
fill out

We are looking for work that will break new ground and forge new
directions in the study of the relationship between emotions and
second language acquisition, be it work on expressing emotions in more
than one language, or in the second language, study of comprehension
of emotion repertoires, or work on differential emotional attachments
to different languages of a second language user. If you are
interested in presenting a paper in the panel (20 minutes of
presentation plus 10 minutes for discussion), could you please send us
your abstract by email before August 15th, the title of the paper,
name and affiliation of the author(s), an abstract of 300 words,
followed by the author�s postal and email addresses.

Thank you !

Aneta Pavlenko and Jean-Marc Dewaele
