عنوان مقاله [English]
This article first reviews findings from contemporary researches on cognitive and propositional (linguistic) approaches to emotion and then presents an analysis of a corpus of Persian language conceptual metaphors of colours based on instances collected from three corpora: Persian Linguistic Database (PLDB), Bijankhan Corpus/Peykare and Google search engine. To do so, a collection of two hundreds and thirteen keywords were selected and searched throughout corpora. Then, names of the mappings were extracted and classified. As a corollary of the patterns derived, it is argued that among the target domains, emotion by 87 instances had the highest frequency. The results of the study clearly show implications regarding growing a visual culture in Iranian Community.
