Politeness is key to all of our relationships and plays a
fundamental part in the way we communicate with each other and the
way we define ourselves. It is not limited only to conventional
aspects of linguistic etiquette, but encompasses all types of
interpersonal behaviour through which we explore and maintain our
relationships. This groundbreaking exploration navigates the reader
through this fascinating area and introduces them to a variety of
new insights. The book is divided into three parts and is based on
an innovative framework which relies on the concepts of social
practice, time and space. In this multidisciplinary approach, the
authors capture a range of user and observer understandings and
provide a variety of examples from different languages and
cultures. With its reader-friendly style, carefully constructed
exercises and useful glossary, Understanding Politeness will be
welcomed by both researchers and postgraduate students working on
politeness, pragmatics and sociolinguistics more broadly.
