dc.description.abstractThis article presents a corpus-based approach to the comparison of partial synonyms on an intra- and cross-linguistic level. The methodology is demonstrated using the example of three lexical fields in French and Spanish, all from the domain of the lexis of emotion: SURPRISE, DISAPPOINTMENT, ANGER. After the intralinguistic analysis of French surprise/etonnement/stupeur and Spanish decepcion/desencanto/desilusion/desengano, the investigation is extended to include a cross-linguistic comparison of French colere/fureur with Spanish colera/furia. As a first step, data that reveals the combinatory behaviour of the analysed lexical items is extracted from a corpus containing comparable quantities of French and Spanish literary and newspaper texts. The co-occurrences thus obtained are then divided into categories of lexical dimensions, e.g. intensity (furia desatada, honda decepcion) or causation of emotion (dechainer la colere, provoquer de la surprise), creating a ``tertium comparationis'' that allows for the comparison between partial synonyms or presumed equivalents in different languages. Finally, the actual analysis is performed using EmoGrammes - an instrument based on descriptive statistics allowing to aggregate and represent the results graphically. This heuristic method has proven particularly helpful in the complex folds of cross-linguistic comparison.
