Has anyone ever compiled a general lexicon for the most commonly used words and/or phrases signifying something like: emotional intensity in argument, ideological polarity, categorical or absolutist viewpoint?
For instance, what kinds of words do people use when they are arguing categorically? What words do fundamentalists use when arguing their positions? Such a vocabulary list might include words like: must, have to, forbid, unacceptable?
I'd be grateful for any guidance.
