EMO-FUNDETT is a coordinate project funded by the Spanish Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad (FFI2013-47792-C2-1-P). Its main area of research is found within the field of linguistic discourse-pragmatic studies.

  • Project dates: 2014

We take a functional perspective on language, and in particular,  we focus on the study of the emotive function of language and its relationship with the evaluative function, which was the main topic of the group’s previous project (FunDETT – Functions of Language. Evaluation in Different Text Types – FFI2009-7308). 

EMO-FUNDETT includes two projects: EMO-FUNDETT EMOTION and EMO-FUNDETT PERSUASION.
