Title: Korean Honorifics and Politeness in Second Language Learning
Written By: Lucien Brown
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=P%26amp%3Bbns%20206
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 206
Description:

This book investigates the ways that advanced speakers of Korean as a second
language perceive, use and learn the complexities of the Korean honorifics
system. Despite their advanced proficiency in Korean, the study shows that the
honorifics use of these speakers diverges in crucial ways from native speaker
norms. It is argued that, rather than reflecting the language competence of these
speakers as such, this usage is linked to questions of the identity of “language
learners” and “foreigners” in Korean society. In addition, it shows the influence of
conflicting ideologies regarding the “meaning” of “politeness”. This argument is
backed up by rich data collected through mixed methods (discourse completion
tests, role-plays, natural interactions, introspective interviews), allowing for a
detailed picture of how the honorifics use of second language speakers emerges
in context. The book concludes by discussing the implications of the study for
politeness research, interlanguage pragmatics and language pedagogy.
