Metaphor and Emotion


The study focuses on the metaphorical expression of emotion in Indonesian. Its major aims are to describe how emotions are expressed metaphorically and to explore cognition and culture perspectives relating to Indonesian emotions. So far, the study has investigated ANGER, HATE and LOVE emotions. A linguistic corpus was created to find mappings between emotion as the target domain and concrete objects as the source domain. The results have been published in several proceedings and presented in several conferences (see under Publications and Conference Presentations below).
