Abstract:

This is the first edited volume dedicated specifically to interlanguage request
modification. It is a collection of empirical studies carried out by an
international array of scholars which provides insights for researchers,
graduate students and language teachers on patterns of interlanguage
request modification in a range of research contexts and linguistic/cultural
settings. The research in this volume takes the reader from a consideration of
interlanguage request modification in naturally-occurring e-mail data, through
to elicited data from e-DCT questionnaires on cyber-consultations, to the
interactive oral discourse of requests in open role-plays. As a whole, the
contributions incorporate research with learners from a range of proficiency
levels and from diverse linguistic/cultural backgrounds while the chapters
individually examine developmental aspects of interlanguage request
modification, requests in electronic contexts, comparative learner/native
speaker requests, and instructional effects on mitigation. The book will
undoubtedly become an important reference for researchers and teachers not
only in the field of pragmatics but also in second language acquisition,
language teaching, (socio-)linguistics and discourse analysis.
