about

This volume has its origins in an international conference on emotions organized by the Polish Association for the Study of English and held at the University of Wroclaw in April 2015. In the course of the conference, it became clear that emotions are productively explored with relation to motion for the reason that emotion(s) and motion(s) constitute profoundly intertwined dimensions of physical and cultural embodiment reflected in language. The relationship between motion(s) and emotion(s) became the underlying theme of this volume, which comprises nineteen contributions presenting exploratory and applicative accounts of (e)motion(s) situated in topical research areas of linguistic theory, second language acquisition, and translation studies.

Editorial Reviews

«[...] most papers in the volume go beyond strictly theoretical approaches and employ various empirical methods in their analyses, for example questionnaires or language corpora. This “linguistics in action” attitude, together with a broad range of issues covered, makes the volume a comprehensive, readable, and useful source of information on the topic.»
