Educational Method of Emotional Vocabulary Based on the ‘Theory of Constructed Emotion’

Jiyeong  Kim1,*   


The purpose of this study is to explore ways to educate Korean language art`s emotional vocabulary from the perspective of "theory of constructed emotion”. In "theory of constructed emotion," emotion refers to the formation of emotional cases through the process of anticipating and guessing based on the concept of emotion. In other words, emotions are organized and conceptualized through the categorization of the brain, just like other human mental activities. The "theory of constructed emotion" emphasizes the principles of "one to many" and "many to one," highlighting "emotional granularity," and underlining the role of emotional vocabulary. In this study, I presented "emphasis on emotional diversity" and "expansion and deepening of emotional concepts" as ways to educate emotional vocabulary.
