Zeitliche Dimension beim Ausdruck von Emotionen : am Beispiel der postmodernen Dramentexte

The temporal dimension in expressing emotions : the example of postmodern theatrical texts

  • This article is based on the observation that the linguistic expression of emotions has three basic categories: intensity, quality, and the temporal dimension. The latter category has not yet received sufficient attention from linguistic research. The article takes the example of contemporary theatrical texts to demonstrate the close correlation between the linguistic means used to express emotion and their temporal dimension. The analysis of the use of these means and their meaning in the given dramatic situation shows that temporality is a linguistic phenomenon which plays a key role in the linguistic expression of emotions in this type of text. It was also shown that the organization of a dramatic text – including an exposition phase or authorial notes – provides a suitable tool for the mediation of various temporal levels, the understanding of which plays an irreplaceable role in the total emotional potential of the text.
