Abstract:

Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced book.

Insightful and cutting-edge, this research monograph examines Japanese
institutional discourse and attempts to clarify the relationship between
politeness, facework and speaker identity. It seeks to establish an
empirically grounded analysis of facework as the basis for evaluating
politeness, describing facework in delicate situations such as
disagreement, teasing and talking about troubles, which have rarely been
discussed in politeness studies.

Discourse and Politeness examines Japanese institutional discourse and
attempts to clarify the relationship between politeness, facework and
speaker identity. The book seeks to establish an empirically grounded
analysis of facework as the basis for evaluating politeness, and describes
facework in delicate situations such as disagreement, teasing and talking
about troubles, which have rarely been discussed in politeness studies.

Insightful and cutting-edge, this research monograph will be of interest to
researchers in discourse analysis, sociolinguistics and Japanese language.

'This book makes a valuable, explicit contribution to the discussion of
this contentious issue. Consequently, it will be useful recommended reading
in discourse analysis courses, and a valuable resource for researchers in
this area, as well as for those interested in the socio-pragmatic aspects
of interaction in Japanese.' Journal of Sociolinguistics, February 2009
