In this case, I think that we have to begin with the problem of the expression of emotions rather than with the question of the utility of a given emotion or even of emotions in general. In fact, as we will see clearly below, I think that the expression of emotions is prior to emotions, both logically and chronologically.

Users interact as conversational partners within a roleplaying language-learning environment. We also intend to use a socio-organisational structure to determine action and behaviour; however, this will be based on notions from Foucauldian power structures and will be focused at a real world rather than a role-playing environment.
