"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 JOY. I hereby take a discursive approach and explicitly accommodate context into my cognitive (corpus) linguistic as well as cross-linguistic analyses. Moreover, I strive to promote a new methodological framework, integrating qualitative and quantitative approaches; I model (descriptive and inferential statistics) my data using R. My research may find a wide range of applications such as in teaching, intercultural communication or automatic inferencing.
