Description Expressions of emotionality in text can be understood as (hyper)propositions, as individual attitudes to a proposition, they can also be interpreted as verbalized scenarios basing on experience. Narrative text, with its fictional situations and contexts, leads to a reconstruction of the expected emotional script, i.e. to its actualization both by the producer and the receiver. The paper discusses the question how these elements work in text, why the text analysis thus has a specific cognitive dimension and why is it worth to deal with.
