Pain, el dolor and tango

The present paper is dedicated to the analysis of the Spanish word dolor (‘pain’) on the basis of a corpus consisting of 100 tango lyrics. I will try to describe the linguistic picture of dolor in tangos, demonstrating its cultural specificity. To describe its lexical and cultural meaning without an ethnocentric bias I will rely here on a method of semantic analysis called NSM, natural semantic metalanguage (Wierzbicka, 1996; Goddard & Wierzbicka, 2002).
