Exploring a largely uncharted territory of cultural history and linguistic
ethnography, Understanding Historical (Im)Politeness' offers in-depth analyses
and perceptive interpretations of the conveyance of social-relational meaning
in times (long) past and across historical cultures.

A collection of essays from the pens of authoritative historical
(pragma)-linguistics researchers, the volume examines the forms and functions
of historical (im)politeness, varying from single utterances and act sequences
to fully-fledged (im)polite speech encounters and genres, with a focus on
their period- and culture-bound appraisal. What is more, the book sheds light
on what is still very dimly seen: diachronic trends in ‘relational work’ and
the cultural-societal factors behind patterns of sociopragmatic change.

The volume reviews theoretical concepts, methods and analytical approaches to
improve our present-day understanding of the historical understanding of
relational practices of the distant as well as the more recent past. Since it
includes newly established themes and positions and breaks new ground, this
collection furthers considerably the field of historical (im)politeness

This volume was originally published as a special issue of 'Journal of
Historical Pragmatics' 12:1/2 (2011).
