Description
Information
This is the first edited collection to examine politeness in a wide range of diverse cultures. Most essays draw on empirical data from a wide variety of languages, including some key-languages in politeness research, such as English, and Japanese, as well as some lesser-studied languages, such as Georgian. The volume also includes four studies that discuss theoretical and empirical aspects of 'face', a construct that continues to attract much attention across disciplines. The specially-commissioned essays in this collection will be of interest to scholars, researchers and advanced students in sociolinguistics, pragmatics, discourse studies, anthropology and intercultural communication.
