This volume brings together for the first time a collection of studies that investigates how multilingual speakers construct emotions in their talk as a joint discursive practice. The contributions draw on the well established, converging traditions of conversation analysis, discursive psychology, and membership categorization analysis together with recent work on interactional storytelling, stylization, and multimodal analysis. By adopting a discursive approach to emotion in multilingual talk, the volume breaks with the dominant view of emotions as cognitive and intra-psychological phenomena and their study through self-report. Through detailed analyses of original recorded data, the chapters examine how participants produce emotion-implicative actions, identities, stances, and morality through their interactional work in ordinary face-to-face conversation, computer-mediated interaction, institutional talk in medical, educational, and broadcast media settings, and in research interviews. The volume addresses itself to students and researchers interested in language and emotion, multilingual speakers and settings, pragmatics, and discourse analysis.

“I appreciate this book both as a teacher and a researcher. I learned many things while reading it. To be even more precise, I became more aware of the fact that emotions are intertwined in most of what we do when we talk. Simultaneously, I became more aware of what we all do when we speak in languages other than our own. I plan to talk about this book to my students, especially in a course on how emotions are discussed in English. I can also recommend it to anyone interested in the linguistic expression of emotion, especially to advanced students and scholars. I certainly do not think that this book should only be read by people working within the framework of CA.”
