Description

This book focuses on showing how people from different cultures and/or speaking different languages may use different politeness strategies in their interaction with one another. The book investigates the notion of politeness and conducts a comparative analysis of the politeness strategies manipulated by the English and the Syriac native speakers in an attempt to specify points of similarity and difference between them. The concept of politeness is a controversial issue, and though people of different cultures generally share common underlying principles, they may differ in their conceptualization of what constitutes a polite behavior.
