Title: Speaking of Emotions: Conceptualisation and Expression
Edited By: Angeliki Athanasiadou
Elżbieta Tabakowska
Series Title: Cognitive Linguistics Research 10
Description:

By illustrating the diverging research methods and procedures possible within the cognitive-linguistic scene, this volume reveals the contribution cognitive linguistics offers to the study of emotions. At the same time, the papers contained in this volume confirm one of the basic assumptions of cognitive linguistics, viz. that conceptualization is governed by ecological, environmental, culture-specific and universal factors. In addition to its great empirical value, the volume is outstanding in that it represents a wide spectrum of cognitive trends so that it testifies to the pluralism within the cognitive-linguistic paradigm: metaphorical-metonymical Lakoffian approach, semantic primitives approach, semasiological-structure approach.
