The Conceptual Structure of the Emotion Domain in English
Zoltán Kövecses (School of English and American Studies, Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest)
The study of the conceptual system associated with emotions in any language / culture involves several issues: (1) To what extent is this system comprehended in a literal or metaphorical way? (2) Are the conceptual metaphors that characterize this system specific to the emotion domain or are they applicable outside the emotions? (3) What exactly is the conceptual structure of the emotion domain? (4) How do speakers operationalize the emotion domain as structured in context? (5) What are the ways of studying the language of emotions given the structure of the emotion domain? In my talk, these are the questions to which I seek and propose an answer on the basis of examples taken from English.
