Abstract:
			
This book pulls together new research and theory on the verbal
communication of emotions by an international, cross-disciplinary
group of recognized experts in affective communication. The book's
goal is to provide readers with a comprehensive view of current
research and encourage cross-disciplinary interaction. Topics include
analyses of literal and figurative expressions for emotions, studies
of the use of metaphor and other figurative expressions for emotion,
analysis of the role of conversational partners in creating emotional
meaning, and the effects of culture on emotional communication.

The chapters are organized into three broad areas: background theory,
figurative language use, and social/cultural aspects of emotional
communication. Part I reviews fundamental issues in the verbal
communication of emotion. Part II examines the role of metaphor and
other figures of speech in emotional communication in both everyday
language and psychotherapeutic contexts. Part III looks at ways
emotions are embedded in larger socio-culture processes. Taken as a
whole, the chapters provide a comprehensive look at the current state
of research on the use of language in affective communication and
suggest a number of interesting directions for future research.
