Example text

Taken together, these data present a powerful case for cultural variability in the emotion lexicon (see van Brakel, 1994, for further examples). Culture-specific basic categories like “love,” “shame,” “surprise,” “sad love,” or “compassion” offer further testament to this verdict. ٗ Meanings of Specific Emotion Words In the previous section, we tried to elaborate the meaning of the general category of emotion by reference to its specific exemplars. In the present section, we refocus our attention on the particular meaning of these exemplars across cultures.

The most popular alternative to the classical approach to definition is Rosch’s (1973) prototype theory. According to this view, many concepts can only be defined in terms of their prototypes—that is, the clearest examples around which the category in question is organized (Fehr & Russell, 1984). The line demarcating the category from other categories thus becomes blurred rather than sharply drawn, and decisions about category membership become probabilistic instead of definitive. The prototype approach has been productively applied to psychological concepts such as “intelligence” (Neisser, 1979), “disposition” (Buss & Craik, 1980), and “traits” (Cantor & Mischel, 1977), as well as to “emotion” (Fehr & Russell, 1984; Shaver, Schwartz, Kirson, & O’Connor, 1987).

These categories also correspond approximately to several lists of so-called “basic emotions” proposed by theorists such as Ekman (1992a) and Izard (1977). However, other supposedly basic emotions do not seem to be prototypical. In particular, surprise is considered by Ekman (1992a) to be a basic emotion, partly because it has a unique facial expression. However, Shaver and colleagues (1987) argued that surprise does not qualify as a basic category, because it is too small (including only three words), and because it is mentioned by very few persons in free-listing studies.
