Bad feelings in context
This article reevaluates Wierzbicka’ s definition (1998) for anger, and includes a proposal regarding cross-cultural data collection in the framework of the Natural Semantic Metalanguage model (see Wierzbicka 1991 and 1999). Since in order to write a NSM definition, it is imperative to identify the most pertinent semantic associations of a concept, we suggest using the socio-cognitive approach (SCA), based on Giora’ s concept of saliency (2003). As a case in point, we study the two concepts hatred and anger as socio-culturally and linguistically defined in two different linguistic and cultural communities (in Franco-French and Cypriot Greek communities). We collected both oral and written data in order to define the salient features of both concepts. When the two corpora are contrasted, some differences regarding the referential dimension have been noted. However semantically a similar categorization for anger and hatred can be drawn from the data in both communities. This study hightlights the fact that revenge occurs by default with hatred, but not with anger as previously suggested.1
