Abstract:

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

Insightful and cutting-edge, this research monograph examines Japaneseinstitutional discourse and attempts to clarify the relationship betweenpoliteness, facework and speaker identity. It seeks to establish anempirically grounded analysis of facework as the basis for evaluatingpoliteness, describing facework in delicate situations such asdisagreement, teasing and talking about troubles, which have rarely beendiscussed in politeness studies.

Discourse and Politeness examines Japanese institutional discourse andattempts to clarify the relationship between politeness, facework andspeaker identity. The book seeks to establish an empirically groundedanalysis of facework as the basis for evaluating politeness, and describesfacework in delicate situations such as disagreement, teasing and talkingabout troubles, which have rarely been discussed in politeness studies.

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

'This book makes a valuable, explicit contribution to the discussion ofthis contentious issue. Consequently, it will be useful recommended readingin discourse analysis courses, and a valuable resource for researchers inthis area, as well as for those interested in the socio-pragmatic aspectsof interaction in Japanese.'
