ON THE CONCEPTUALISATION OF NEGATIVE EMOTIONS BELONGING TO THE DOMAIN OF FEAR
Languages of publication
Talking about feelings expresses the ways of experiencing emotions - and acting or behaving in accordance with them - that are conventionally associated with them in the given culture. Negative emotions belonging to the domain of fear (alarm, anguish, anxiety, concern, consternation, dread, excitement, fright, horror, panic, scare, shudder, terror, tremble) are often conceptualised in Hungarian as a force paralysing human body, as a container [into which emotions get as a substance (movement in), in which they are contained, and out of which they emerge (movement out)], as a liquid substance, as a gaseous substance, as an enemy, as a dominator (occupier), as an animate being (man, beast, bird), as a building, as a mirror, or as a positive force.
