Abstract

This contribution examines the use of body terms in expressions of emotion in Kuot, a non-Austronesian language of New Ireland, Papua New Guinea. It is found that expressions involving the word for ‘stomach’, , correspond mainly to what we would consider to be psychological states, while expressions making use of ‘skin; body’ are largely concerned with physical states. Some other body parts also form part of emotive expressions.
