Write The First Customer Review

Insightful and cutting-edge, this research monograph examines Japanese institutional discourse and attempts to clarify the relationship between politeness, facework and speaker identity. It seeks to establish an empirically grounded analysis of facework as the basis for evaluating politeness, describing facework in delicate situations such as disagreement, teasing and talking about troubles, which have rarely been discussed in politeness studies.
