My name is Elianeth Tinjacá and I'm applying for a Master degree in Applied Linguistics in ELE at the Universidad Nebrija, in Spain. I'm interested in checking the emotional perception of students of a foreign language, especially those who are Spanish learners. Also, I would like to test this corpus which contains real utterances based on the way Colombian people express emotions such as happiness and sadness.
This current research collects 4 pairs of utterances in Colombian Spanish which only differ in a prosodic level. The idea is to trial the test with students of Spanish around the world. This will allow us to gather enough information and see if Spanish learners perceive emotions expressed in the variety of Colombia the same way as the native ones.
