Using adjectives that are related to taste for describing emotions


You might have seen that most of the adjectives that are related to taste are used to describe emotions. It is very common.

Salty, sour, sweet, bitter etc. We use these adjectives to describe people and their emotions.

How did these adjectives acquire those meanings?

Do the speakers of other languages also use such kind of adjectives?

(Sorry for not using the correct tags.)

I don't know how they acquired those meanings but they do exist in loads of other languages. Italian, Arabic, Norwegian, Mandinka, Wolof etc. ‭DecapitatedSoul‭ about 1 month ago
