ABSTRACT

Song Buseon. 2006. Metaphors of Anger and Happiness in English and Korean. Korean Semantics, 20. This paper presents a comparative study of conceptual metaphors of anger and happiness in English and Korean. It shows systematically recurring patterns of English and Korean metaphorical expressions of anger and happiness. Both English and Korean share many metaphors in their conceptualizations of anger and happiness, but there are some conceptual and descriptive differences observed throughout the study. This study provides support for the claim by Lakoff(1993) and Kvecses(2000) that the conceptualization of emotions has universality that comes from universal aspect of bodily functioning in emotional states. At the same time. there are variations across cultures and languages, since bodily experience always interacts with specific physical, social, and cultural environments.
