Language Teaching

 Emolinguistics needs to be introduced into

language teaching.

This includes every langauge learning environment at an appropriate age.
 

The  teaching of how grammar lexical items either individual or forms, both tense and conceptual, impact on our emotional interpretation of any communication both in our mother tongues and in relationship to any other langauge we are might be learning. 

The emotional concepts of lexical vocabulary items and forms are learnt through our life experiences whereas the grammar forms are far more subtle and require a level of study to understand how they influence our emotional interpretation.
 

Emolinguistics requires study of how language and emotions interact. It explores the emotional dimensions of language, including how language can be used to express emotions, how emotions can influence language use, and how language can be used to manage and regulate emotions.

 

There are several reasons why emolinguistics needs to be taught in every language teaching environmenT.

 

Understanding the concept of Emotion and how it functions.

 

Enhance language learning: Emolinguistics can help learners to better understand and use the emotional aspects of language, such as the use of tone, intonation, and body language. This can improve their ability to communicate effectively in different social situations, including formal and informal settings. 

 

Develop empathy and cultural awareness: Emolinguistics can help learners to develop empathy and cultural awareness by exploring the emotional and cultural meanings of language use. This can enable learners to better understand and connect with people from different cultural backgrounds in understanding how there are different emotional concepts to those felt in our own language. 

 

Improve emotional regulation: Emolinguistics can help learners to better understand and regulate their own emotions through language use. This can improve their emotional well-being and ability to cope with stress and difficult situations.

 

Enhance job skills: Emolinguistics can be particularly beneficial for learners who plan to work in fields such as counseling, healthcare, or customer service. These professions require strong communication skills and the ability to manage emotions effectively, and emolinguistics can help learners develop these skills.

 

Overall, emolinguistics can be a valuable addition to any language teaching environment, as it can help learners to better understand and use language in a variety of social and emotional contexts with a confidence of the possible emtional impact to the linguistics used. 

An understanding of emotion can provide us with a Mental Aid for Life,
