This readable book presents a new general theoretical understanding of politeness. It offers an account of a wide range of politeness phenomena in English, illustrated by hundreds of examples of actual language use taken largely from authentic British and American sources. Building on his earlier pioneering work on politeness, Geoffrey Leech takes a pragmatic approach that is based on the controversial notion that politeness is communicative altruism. Leech's book, Principles of Pragmatics, introduced the now widely-accepted distinction between pragmalinguistic and sociopragmatic aspects of politeness; this book returns to the pragmalinguistic side, somewhat neglected in recent work. Drawing on neo-Gricean thinking, Leech rejects the prevalent view that it is impossible to apply the terms 'polite' or 'impolite' to linguistic phenomena.
This maxim instructs to avoid saying unpleasant things about others and especially about the hearer. Meanwhile, expressive are utterances that show the speaker feeling.
The example is sampled below. He talks the pleasant thing about other.
This expression is a congratulation utterance that maximizes praise of other. Thus this utterance is included the approbation maxim. The Modesty Maxim In the modesty maxim, the participants must minimize praise of self and maximize dispraise of self.
Both the approbation maxim and the modesty maxim concern to the degree of good or bad evaluation of other or self that is uttered by the speaker. The approbation maxim is exampled by courtesy of congratulation.
On other hand, the modesty maxim usually occurs in apologies. The sample of the modesty maxim is below. The Agreement Maxim In the agreement maxim, there is tendency to maximize agreement between self and other people and minimize disagreement between self and other.
The disagreement, in this maxim, usually is expressed by regret or partial agreement.
There example will be illustrated below. He does not express his disagreement strongly to be more polite. The polite answer will influence the effect of the hearer. The Sympathy Maxim The sympathy maxim explains to minimize antipathy between self and other and maximize sympathy between self and other. In this case, the achievement being reached by other must be congratulated.
On other hand, the calamity happens to other, must be given sympathy or condolences. The necessity of the Politeness Principle 5. Bibliography 1. Overview of the Politeness Principle In everyday situations we have to communicate with other people to get information, to gain knowledge about a topic or to reach a variety of goals. To be successful, one has to follow some important strategies.
Beside the rule of the language philosopher H. Grice, which is called the Cooperative Principle, there exists another concept that served when people are talking.
It is called the Politeness Principle which has above all been developed by Leech. In the centre of this concept does not stand the information of a conversation, but the effect of what is said on the people. The negative politeness belongs eminently to the directive group, while positive politeness is dominant in the commissive and expressive group.
Among those groups there are existing a variety of theories and maxims which I like to deal with in the following essay. Delimiting the politeness concept 2. In general Politeness is understood as the desire to be pleasant to fellow men.
