[xmca] Language as the link between emotions and culture.
Emotions result from either conscious or subconscious cognitive
activity. We feel the, "What-does-this-mean-to-me", conclusion of
cognitive processes as emotion. Emotion motivates us to action. From
its spelling, the word emotion means "that which causes motion" or
"motion born out of something". We do what we do because it seems to
be in our interest. The thought processes, whether conscious or
subconscious, provides us with the information. (in formation), the
implications of which give rise to emotions. When our forebears
vocally expressed these emotions and those vocal expressions
subsequently were used referentially as words, the original vocal
emotional expressions became cultural institutions.
