Abstract:

This edited collection investigates historical linguistic politeness and
impoliteness. Although some research has been undertaken uniting politeness
and historical pragmatics, it has been sporadic at best, and often limited
to traditional theoretical approaches. This is a strange state of affairs,
because politeness plays a central role in the social dynamics of language.
This collection, containing contributions from renowned experts, aims to
fill this hiatus, bringing together cutting-edge research. Not only does it
illuminate the language usage of earlier periods, but by examining the past
it places politeness today in context. Such a diachronic perspective also
affords a further test-bed for current models of politeness. This volume
provides insights into historical aspects of language, particularly items
regularly deployed for politeness functions, and the social, particularly
interpersonal, contexts with which it interacts. It also sheds light on how
(social) meanings are dynamically constructed in situ, and probes various
theoretical aspects of politeness. Its papers deploy a range of
multilingual (e.g. English, Spanish, Italian and Chinese) diachronic data
drawn from different genres such as letters, dramas, witch trials and
manners books.
