The paper presents a procedure that uses speech analysis to assess the meaning structures in natural-language emotion terms. It is noted that most psychological research on specific emotions is based on a structuring of the emotion domain provided by natural-language emotion terms, and that the vagueness and inconsistencies of natural-language emotion terms is frequently problematic. The proposed procedure assumes that the use of natural-language emotion terms in the attribution of emotions to self and others is guided by rules, that these rules can be reconstructed, and that the outcome of this reconstruction can be described as an (abstract) structure. The general procedure for obtaining these structures (explicit meaning structures) is described and illustrated with the German emotion term "Empoerung" (moral indignation). Then possible applications of the procedure and the explicit meaning structures are discussed: explicit meaning structures as (1) a reference point for intercultural emotion research, (2) as a starting point for differentiating empirical and pseudo-empirical questions, (3) for defining and operationalizing the object of research, and (4) for generating hypotheses on conditions, consequences, and possibilities of modifying specific emotions.

Discusses some of the points raised in K. Scherer's reply to the authors' criticism of his component process model of the emotions (both in Sprache & Kognition 1989, 8 (1)). The first point considered is Scherer's doubts about the hypothesis that the explication of the semantic structures of the words used to describe emotions in everyday language forms the precondition for scientific concept formation and empirical research into specific emotions in psychology. Then his doubts about the possibility of implementing a standardized language analysis in this context are considered. He justifies these doubts by pointing to the interindividual differences in the use of words describing emotions. Finally, a reply is given to his doubts about the implications of using language analysis for psychological research on specific emotions in different language communities and cultures. [less ▲]

Uses the example of K. R. Scherer's component process model to critically discuss the theoretical and epistemological problems in cognitive approaches to the analysis of specific emotions. First, a syndromatic understanding of emotions is discussed in which expressive and physiological patterns of reactions as well as perceptions are regarded as necessary components of a specific emotion. Then three of the goals of cognitive approaches named by Scherer are discussed: (1) the scientific conceptualization of specific emotions, (2) the analysis of the semantics of emotion terms, and (3) the causal analysis of specific emotions. In contrast to Scherer's concept, an explicit analysis of natural-language emotion terms is considered to be an essential basis for the scientific conceptualization of specific emotions. The latter is seen as a requirement for differntiating between empirical and pseudoempirical research. [less ▲]
