Abstract This chapter emotional meaning construction in two bilingual groups: native (L1) speakers of Russian and Ukrainian from the same region (city of Kyiv, Ukraine), same social group (university students), same age, and comparable cultural exposure. Coupled with the typological affinity of the languages at stake, the expectation is that the meaning profiles of emotion terms obtained from both groups would exhibit none, or minimal differences. However, this expectation is only partially confirmed by the data, as distinct and pattern-like between-sample differences emerge in the emotion regulation component. Specifically, negative emotion terms (including opposing interpersonal terms such as anger or hate and fear-related terms) score robustly higher on the emotional control side in the L1 Russian group than in L1 Ukrainian group. The chapter concludes with the discussion of three post hoc interpretations of this pattern.
