Abstract:This paper examines the main recent theories in the conceptualization of emotions, proposing an integrative theoretical and methodological framework of analysis, from a cultural-anthropological and cognitive historical semantics point of view. Emotions represent complex cognitive and cultural phenomena, linguistically encoded, diachronically and diatopically variable. Following the undertaken theoretical and methodological premises, we put forward a case study: the analysis of the historical dynamics of a core emotional concept, LOVE in Romanian, focusing on the conceptual-semantic mutations undergone within the process of transition from the Old Medieval period (the 16th – the 18th centuries) towards the Early Modern time (end of the 18th century – first part of the 19th century).
Key words:emotions, conceptualization, semantic parameters, cultural-affective pattern, love
