While leafing through the pages of the Lilienfeld textbook, the words on the pages of chapter eleven leaped out at me. Chapter eleven discusses emotions and the expressions associated with them. I find this area of research extremely interesting because there is a significant case for universality of the recognition of these expressions across cultures. Last semester, I wrote a research analysis paper for my freshman seminar on linguistics. I analyzed numerous articles that discussed research of multiple cultures, all of which were able to recognize the primary emotions defined by Paul Ekman in addition to others such as pride. Of all of the chapters in the Lilienfeld book, I am most excited to get to chapter eleven so that I can read and learn more about this topic.
