Sažetak
The experience of space, perception and the human body are common grounding do-mains in cognitive linguistic studies, including metaphor studies. Emotions are usually treat-ed as grounded through more basic, domains (cf. metaphors such as ANGER IS HEAT, which assumes that the physical sensation of heat is more basic than anger). However, with more intersubjectively oriented views of grounding and the affective turn, there has been an in-crease in views where emotions as well as language are potential grounding domains. In this paper we discuss whether emotion/affect (defined broadly as a common system ; cf. Wilce (2009)) may serve as a grounding system in abstract concepts, in line with the claim that “abstract concepts are at least partially embodied in our affective system” (Vigliocco et al., 2014, p. 1774). With this end, we use the data collected for the Croatian Psycholinguistic Database, the first database of concreteness, subjective frequency and imageability ratings for Croatian (http://megahr.ffzg.unizg.hr/hr/?page_id=136). The database currently contains 3000 noun, verb and adjective ratings. In this paper, we report on emotional valence and arousal ratings collected for this study, for a subsection of 100 nouns and 100 verbs from the database and their correlations with psycholinguistic variables. Preliminary results suggest that there are moderate significant positive correlations of both valence and arousal with imageability, which is in line with previous studies (Citron, Weekes, & Ferstl, 2014), whereas no clear ef-fects were found for concreteness. In view of these results and in view of rating and neuroimaging studies performed on other languages, we discuss the plausibility of situational grounding which includes the af-fective from an intersubjective perspective. If affect is taken as an (additional) grounding mechanism, conceptual metaphors may be doubly grounded – in the embodied and the affec-tive, given that metaphors have an affective function (Cameron, 2003). If this is taken fur-ther, then the affective element may be proposed as a perspective-taking mechanism on a par with other perspective-taking mechanisms posited by Talmy and Langacker and based large-ly on spatial reasoning. This characteristic enables language to be used as an element build-ing emotional styles (Gammerl, 2012) or affective communities (Hutchison, 2016). References Cameron, L. (2003).
