Title: Research on Politeness in Spanish-Speaking Countries
Edited By: Carmen García
Description:

One of the main contributions of this important book is that it offers a
thorough survey of the theoretical and empirical developments that have
occurred in the area of (im)politeness in the different regions of the
Spanish-speaking world, gathering together overviews by distinguished
scholars. Additionally, the book advances the field with new empirical
research on linguistic (im)politeness, and silence and (im)politeness, in a
range of (non)institutional contexts, as well as new perspectives for the
study of (im)politeness. A closing chapter by the editors provides an
assessment of salient trends in the area and directions for future research.
'Research on Politeness in the Spanish-Speaking World' is essential reading
for senior undergraduates and graduate students in Spanish pragmatics and
Spanish linguistics, sociolinguistics, and discourse analysis. The volume
is also very useful to English-speaking scholars in the general field of
pragmatics who are not proficient in Spanish but require access to these
empirical studies.
