Emotion Talk Across Corpora offers new insights into how English speakers
talk about their own and others' emotions. It is the first book-length
treatment of 'emotion talk' in four registers of British English -
conversation, news reportage, fiction and academic discourse - to combine
research in two well-known linguistic approaches: appraisal theory and
corpus linguistics. Using a 20-million-word sub set from the British
National Corpus, it combines small- and large-scale corpus studies of
emotion terms and their patterns with an analysis of texts according to a
modified version of Appraisal theory. The book is a major contribution to
the study of language and emotion, drawing on findings from cognitive
linguistics, psychology and (linguistic) appraisal theory to model and
interpret emotion talk, and will appeal to all researchers interested in
the use of emotion talk in naturally occurring discourse.
