Emotive Linguoecology – A Linguistic Paradigm of the XXI Century

Natalia G. Solodovnikova
Abstract—The article discusses the prerequisites for the development of emotive linguoecology – a new branch of Russian science. The article also analyzes the society's demand in a linguoecological approach to emotions. Taking into account the almost ten-year existence of the mentioned scientific area, the concept of ecology is being reconsidered. The examples of ecological and non-ecological texts are given. Integration of emotive and linguoecological competences is also comprehended. Trends in the development of emotive linguoecology are predicted. The article continues a series of previous works by its author. The motivation of the proposed and described approach to emotive linguoecology in this article is epistemological interest, dictated by three factors. Firstly, by the fact that we have witnessed the birth of this science, secondly, by the extremely limited range of its adherents, and thirdly, by the fact that the concepts of emotive linguoecology, which seemed to be self-evident ten years ago, now provoke the need for their systematic reinterpretation due to the vagueness of their semantics. The works on emotive linguoecology known to us are scattered and descriptive. They formulate important questions that remain unanswered and outline prospects for the development of emotive linguoecology. The decline in scientific enthusiasm for emotive linguoecology does not seem entirely justified. Therefore, we would like to introduce our colleagues to this most interesting area of scientific knowledge as one of the possible paradigms for interpreting the place of homo sentiens in the world of ecology of emotions.

Index Terms—Emotions, homo sentiens, emotive linguoecology, ecology of emotions.
