Sémantique des sentiments "quand je pense à toi, je ressens quelque chose de mauvais" en français et en polonais

Abstract : The semantic field of the emotions which refers to bad feelings towards the others is well developed, both in French and in Polish, but the equivalent semantic fields are structured differently. Situated in the research line about the linguistic picture of the world, and inspired more particularly by Anna Wierzbicka's works, the thesis aims to semantically describe feelings like hatred, contempt, despite, etc., in French and Polish. First, the thesis questions various classifications of the concepts of the emotional domain as well as the generic names and verbs of this domain, with an aim of releasing a natural and dynamic categorization. This is followed by a study of the emotional predicates according to the parameter of agentivity which appears to be fundamental in the structuring of the emotional domain. The parameter "agentivity", in the particular meaning that David Dowty gives to it, confirms the conclusions on the organization of the emotional field, namely that the expressions of the affects can be considered as agentive predicates (they are then feelings) as well as non-agentive predicates (they are then emotions). Finally the particular affects chosen are analyzed in two parallel chapters which treat successively French and Polish affective expressions. The affects, being complex concepts, are analyzed on the one hand respect to their predicative structure and on the other hand, according to their components (cognitive, emotional and physical). Results of these analyses are then compared and an unified model of description of affective concepts is proposed. The thesis ends with the interrogation about the aspectual nature of affective concepts
