Calmness Conquers Anxiety: What Language Tells Us about Mind and Body Control
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of English.
2019 (English)In: Psycholinguistics (working title) / [ed] Xiaoming Jiang, InTech Open , 2019Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter is fully based on linguistic data representing Early Modern and Present-day English, including early English printed books and contemporary online texts. The main bulk of the data was collected with the search term calmness. The data indicates that it is important for people to experience control of their emotions and behavior and that they understand emotional calmness in terms of the kinds of tranquility that they see in nature, for example, when the sea is still. The connection between people and nature seems therefore to be strong. However, the data also suggest that calmness does not just naturally occur in people but has to be achieved through active work and that ideas concerning the nature of such work differ from one context, period, and location to another.
