Abstract:

This study aims to investigate politeness in womens and mens speech,
with a particular focus on the use of c'est-�-dire, enfin, hein and
quoi in contemporary spoken French. Politeness is defined as going
beyond the notion of the face-threatening act, englobing both everyday
ideas of politeness and the creation of sociability in face-to-face
interaction. The pragmatic particles studied are demonstrated to
serve both psycholinguistic and sociolinguistic purposes: they
lubricate reformulation and contribute to both sociability and social
indexation. The study, which combines qualitative and quantitative
analysis, is based on a corpus of spontaneous spoken French,
comprising 155,000 words, 95 interviews and subjects ranging in age
from 7 to 88 years. The sample contains speakers from a broader range
of educational backgrounds than is often the case: a butcher, a
video-salesman and a toiletteur canin rub shoulders with counter
assistants, teachers and doctors.
