Abstract: Aneta Pavlenko (henceforth A.P.) is a pioneer in the study of “languages and emotion” in general and “emotions and bilingualism” in particular. If I voice in this commentary some disagreements, I do so in order to engage in a constructive discussion, conscious of how much she has done in this area, and also, of how much we share in our respective perspectives on emotion, languages, and bilingual lives.
