About this book

This book offers new insights into how English speakers talk about their own and others' emotions. Using statistical evidence and corpus-linguistic methods, but also qualitative text analyses, the author examines how expressions that describe emotions are employed in a large corpus of conversational, newspaper, fictional and academic English.

Reviews

"...working at the interface of two complementary perspectives on language, corpus linguistics and systemic functional linguistic theory, and developing new insights into the language of evaluation at the edge of knowledge in both these interacting domains, ... Bednarek rises effectively to this challenge, paving the way for a generation of transdisciplinary rapprochement across these two fields." - Professor James R. Martin, University of Sydney, Australia

"...the differentiation between emotion talk and emotional talk, as well as being brilliantly clarified, will, quite possibly, be new, and indeed, fascinating, to many readers." - International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism

"Monika Bednarek's Emotion Talk Across Corpora is interesting in many respects; first and foremost, for the corpus-based insight it provides in the lexicalization of emotions in different genres of British English. The book shows extensive knowledge of the literature on previous emotion research - even in fields other than linguistics - and a remarkable ability to schematize a complex theoretical panorama, where the borders between the various contributions are not always clear-cut." - Gloria Cappelli, University of Pisa, Italy
