This research aimed to explore the psychology-related words) i.e, emotion, cognition, psychopathology, therapy and personality), their pleasant/unpleasant, somatic/non-somatic and common/uncommon ratios in Persian dictionaries (namely, Moeen, Amid and Moaser).
All entries in these three dictionaries were investigated by three independent judges (all psychologists) for their descriptive and qualitative characteristics. The final judgments benefited from linguistic feedbacks produced by a specialist in this field.
Using SPSS for windows, the analysis showed that pleasant/unpleasant, somatic/non-somatic and common/uncommon ratios of the target psychological components (Emotion, cognition, psychopathology, therapy and personality) were significantly different from one another. Moreover, it appeared that the results on cognition and therapy are against those respectively on emotion and psychopathology.
Discussion: The findings will be theoretically discussed from psychological point of view.
