Sayaka Abe presents her analysis of Japanese emotion concepts drawn from mangaas a possible medium for language pedagogy. In contrast to traditional textbooks, her research imagines authentic materials such as manga as rich sources of social situations captured through words, images, and stories. Informed by theories of lexicon, grammar, and cognition, this talk will explore two aspects of digital technology: first, how it can contribute to a more systematic understanding of language and affect within linguistic study; and second, how it can help Japanese language learners grasp the discourse of empathy in Japanese more effectively.
