Ukta concept for anger
Chapter 7 endnote 30, from How Emotions are Made: The Secret Life of the Brain by Lisa Feldman Barrett.
Some context is:
Utka Eskimos have no concept of “Anger.”
The Utka do have a word for "Anger," but it's not clear what the referent concept is. On one reading, the Utka concept has similarities to the English language concept "Anger." But in another interpretation, the concept is more like "Childish, Dangerous Behavior."
