This chapter explores historiographical debates about emotion words, particularly concerning whether historians should employ the word ‘emotion’ as a meta-category to encompass historical iterations of emotion-like phenomena. Erring firmly on the side of rejection in this debate, the chapter goes on to analyse particular linguistic interventions in emotions research, as well as the vicissitudes of individual emotion words, such as ‘empathy’.
