Verbalization of Emotions in the Cognitive Theory of Metaphor: An Ontological and Epistemological Aspects




The article analyzes the ontological and epistemological bases (onto-epistemological foundations) of emotion verbalization in the framework of the cognitive theory of metaphor. The ontological aspect of the emotion verbalization problem is the identification of emotional markers for different communication environments. The epistemological aspect describes structural models that organize recognized, modulated, and produced emotions for systematization and categorization. The processes of verbalization (conceptualization and lexicalization) of words with emotional coloring and their philosophical meaning, as well as descriptive and normative connotations of metaphors, are shown.
Metaphor is understood as a fundamental cognitive process. Metaphor is not limited only of the language sphere, but is a way of knowing the environment and a way of thinking, including through cognitive scenarios that allow to be aware of emotions and those of interlocutors, or through idealized cognitive models that allow to separate a metaphorical expression from a conceptual metaphor. Within the framework of the onto-epistemological approach, the article discusses the problems of the dynamics of the language code, reveals the mechanisms of recognizing other people’s emotions and managing their own emotions in the process of communication.
There is a fundamental interdisciplinarity of research in the field of emotions, which allows to reveal the mechanisms of recognition and modeling of emotions in intelligent systems.
