This chapter offers a brief overview of earlier research on emotion in social interaction, and sets out the questions that the current collection seeks to answer. Earlier research in conversation analysis, interactional linguistics and related fields has shown that the verbal, prosodic and non-vocal expression of emotion is intimately tied to the sequential organization of interaction. Expression of emotion is part of an action at a particular place in the on-going interaction, and it makes relevant specifiable responses from the co-participants that go along or change the jointly constructed emotional ground. The current collection seeks to further our knowledge regarding the ways in which emotional stances expressed in social interaction, the contributions that these expressions make to the organization of action sequences, and their regulation in institutional settings.

Keywords:   emotion, verbal expression, prosody, non-vocal expression, institutions, action, activity
