The meaning structure of emotion terms: integration across components

Author
Organization
Abstract
This chapter compares the role of the different components in predicting the overall dimensions. The contribution of the appraisal factors seems to be mediated by the reaction component factors. A stepwise discriminant analysis, introducing the component factors in the theoretically expected order, supports the proposed primacy of appraisal as a differentiating component. The major conclusions from the main data set are: (1) the semantic profiles of major emotion words are shared in a stable fashion within and across different cultures; (2) four factors are needed to span the emotional space; (3) unique dimensional structures for each component, adapted to its specific function in the emotion episode, are identified; (4) the emotion component factors differentially contribute to the overall dimensions without duplicating the overall structure; (5) a combination of only the ten best predictors drawn from several components allows to differentiate the categories with approx. 70% accuracy in a multiple discriminant analysis.
