ABSTRACT

In the study among body words to express feelings, it is founded that predicate of a sentence with body-words connects what kind of feeling expression occur. Though the expression of “tension” idiom keeps both the inside and outside body-words, it has more deep connections with inside body words. In the case of the outside body-word “Chest”, it needs to belong to grouping of inside body-words because it strongly keeps the meaning of “mind” and “heart”. The common meaning nature of predicate sentence is “Heat”, “Eruption”, “Tough”, “Heat beating”, and “Pain”. Among them, the most frequent expression predicate is the common nature “Heat”. “Tension” is the emotion which is not active and not easy to observed. Because of this kind of point, inside body words can be easily distributed in predicate sentence through the meaning nature of “Heat”, “Eruption”, “Tough”, and “Heat beating”. We can observed how the expression of “Tension” connects to the predicate of sentence. Expression of Anger is much stronger than “Tension” and it has clear character. So when the expression of “Anger” is compared with “Tension”, I can find that the expression of “Eye” becomes distributed high as an outside body words and low as an inside body words.
