"Emotion Concepts in Context - a Contrastive Analysis of English and German Discourse"
My main interest lies in research on language and emotion. I specifically focus on cross-linguistic differences in English and German emotion concepts such as ANGER or HAPPINESS. I hereby take a discursive approach and explicitly accommodate context into my cognitive (corpus) linguistic as well as cross-linguistic analyses. My research is relevant for a wide range of applications such as teaching or automatic inferencing.
