Abstract: In this paper, the authors compared emotional strategies in mobile phone email communication between American and Japanese young people focusing on what kind of emotional strategies were used when sending mobile phone email in response to four kinds of emotional scenarios (i.e. happy, sad, anger, and guilt). The relationships among the emotions which participants experienced, the emotions which the participants wanted to convey to their partners, and the emotions which the participants anticipate the partners will experience were considered in the emotional strategies. Between the two countries, some characteristic differences about emotional strategies were seen.
