Emotional responses to certain words is often argued to be a result of nurture(acquired through development), while emotional responses to Tone is largely attributable to nature(born with).
Shouldn't there be words/phrases that universally trigger an emotional response or at-least words/phrases that largely seek to trigger an emotional response in American culture?
Example #1: "That man is 'untrustworthy'."
emotional response #1: distrust
Example #2:"You are disgusting for stealing candy from a baby"
emotional response #2: the person being told they are disgusting feels ashamed (or is meant to)
Does American culture have words/phrases that trigger feelings like (fear, happiness, disgust, or pity)?
