Abstract:

Language is a means we use to communicate feelings; we also reflect
emotionally on the language we and others use. James Wilce analyses the
signals people use to express emotion, looking at the social, cultural and
political functions of emotional language around the world. The book
demonstrates that speaking, feeling, reflecting, and identifying are
interrelated processes and shows how desire or shame are attached to
language. Drawing on nearly one hundred ethnographic case studies, it
demonstrates the cultural diversity, historical emergence, and political
significance of emotional language. Wilce brings together insights from
linguistics and anthropology to survey an extremely broad range of genres,
cultural concepts, and social functions of emotional expression.
