OKAY across lan­guages: toward a com­par­a­tive approach to its use in talk-in-inter­ac­tion
BuchcoverOKAY has been termed ‘a spec­tac­u­lar expres­sion’ and ‘America’s great­est inven­tion.’ This vol­ume offers an in-depth empir­i­cal study of the uses that have result­ed from its glob­al spread. Focus­ing on actions and inter­ac­tion­al prac­tices, it inves­ti­gates OKAY in a vari­ety of set­tings in 13 lan­guages. The col­lect­ed work show­cas­es the impor­tance of a holis­tic analy­sis: prosod­ic real­iza­tion and the place­ment of OKAY in its larg­er sequen­tial and mul­ti­modal con­text emerge as con­sti­tu­tive for dis­tinct uses in indi­vid­ual lan­guages. An induc­tive approach makes it pos­si­ble to iden­ti­fy prac­tices not pre­vi­ous­ly doc­u­ment­ed, for exam­ple OKAY used for ‘qual­i­fied accep­tance’ or as a ‘con­tin­uer’, and to doc­u­ment a core of recur­rent, sim­i­lar uses across lan­guages. This work also out­lines new research direc­tions for com­par­a­tive analy­sis by offer­ing first insights into the diachron­ic devel­op­ment of OKAY’s uses and the rela­tion­ship of OKAY to oth­er par­ti­cles in spe­cif­ic lan­guages.

The Rout­ledge com­pan­ion to lit­er­a­ture and emo­tion
BuchcoverThe Rout­ledge Com­pan­ion to Lit­er­a­ture and Emo­tion shows how the „affec­tive turn“ in the human­i­ties applies to lit­er­ary stud­ies. Deft­ly com­bin­ing the sci­en­tif­ic ele­ments with the lit­er­ary, the book pro­vides a the­o­ret­i­cal and top­i­cal intro­duc­tion to read­ing lit­er­a­ture and emo­tion.
Look­ing at a vari­ety of for­mats, includ­ing nov­els, dra­ma, film, graph­ic fic­tion, and lyric poet­ry, the book also includes focus on spe­cif­ic authors such as Shake­speare, Chaucer, Jane Austen, Vir­ginia Woolf, and Viet Thanh Nguyen. The vol­ume intro­duces the the­o­ret­i­cal ground­work, cov­er­ing such cat­e­gories as affect the­o­ry, affec­tive neu­ro­science, cog­ni­tive sci­ence, evo­lu­tion, and his­to­ry of emo­tions. It exam­ines the range of emo­tions that play a spe­cial role in lit­er­a­ture, includ­ing hap­pi­ness, fear, aes­thet­ic delight, empa­thy, and sym­pa­thy, as well as aspects of lit­er­a­ture (style, nar­ra­tive voice, and oth­ers) that bear on emo­tion­al response. Final­ly, it explores eth­i­cal and polit­i­cal con­cerns that are often inter­twined with emo­tion­al response, includ­ing racism, colo­nial­ism, dis­abil­i­ty, ecol­o­gy, gen­der, sex­u­al­i­ty, and trau­ma.
This is a cru­cial guide to the ways in which new, inter­dis­ci­pli­nary under­stand­ings of emo­tion and affect—in fields from neu­ro­science to social theory—are chang­ing the study of lit­er­a­ture and of the ways those new under­stand­ings are impact­ed by work on lit­er­a­ture also.
