Emotions and Multilingualism by Aneta Pavlenko
Book DescriptionHow do bilinguals experience emotions? Do they perceive and express emotions similarly or differently in their respective languages? Does the first language remain forever the language of the heart? What role do emotions play in second language learning and in language attrition? Why do some writers prefer to write in their second language? In this provocative book, Pavlenko challenges the monolingual bias of modern linguistics and psychology and uses the lens of bi- and multilingualism to offer a fresh perspective on the relationship between language and emotions. Bringing together insights from the fields of linguistics, neurolinguistics, psychology, anthropology, psychoanalysis and literary theory, Pavlenko offers a comprehensive introduction to this cross-disciplinary movement. This is a highly readable and thought-provoking book that draws on empirical data and first hand accounts and offers invaluable advice for novice researchers. It will appeal to scholars and researchers across many disciplines.

Presenting a synthesis of the work concerning crosslinguistic influence, or 'transfer', this book offers an account of transfer in second-language learning and its consequences for language and thought. It covers the transfer in both production and comprehension, and ideas such as the distinction between semantic and conceptual transfer.
