|Meeting Description:||The staggering explosion of research on (im)politeness we have witnessed in recent decades has arguably paid relatively little attention (especially at the theoretical level) to one aspect which is crucial to the description of any cultural phenomenon. This is the transmission of and acculturation to (im)polite norms and associated linguistic systems (e.g. honorifics), or, in very broad terms, the ‘teaching’ and ‘learning’ of (im)politeness.|
