The verbs with the semantic feature “emotionality” in the contemporary German and Macedonian language

By Biljana Ivanovska


In this paper I try to give an overview and to analyze the different ways of the description of the emotional state of humans in contemporary German and Macedonian language, which can be expressed through different word classes. My purpose in this section is to implement the contrastive analysis to the verbs with the semantic feature ‘emotionality’ in contemporary German and Macedonian language. In addition, I hope that the implications of these comparisons of the Macedonian and German verbs can be applied in teaching Macedonian and German, especially when it comes to teaching DaF (Deutsch als Fremdsprache) as well as in translation and teaching material design (grammars, dictionaries, textbooks, etc.). This group of verbs with the semantic element "emotionality" in modern German and Macedonian language is presented, and an attempt is made to classify this group of verbs on morphological, semantic and syntactic level. Key words: emotionality, comparative analysis, classification of verbs
